Hiking At Togakushi
Togakushi is a region filled with nature and perfect for those looking to go hiking. The area has several important shrines that are connected by beautiful forest trails.
There are several ponds in the area and the one with the best scenery is Kagami-ike pond, “kagami” meaning mirror. The reason behind this apt name is that on a day with little wind the lake reflects Mount Togakushi on the water, creating a picturesque scenery.
Caution is advised when you want to go hiking in the area though. There are bears and snakes so tread carefully. Having said that, bears are mostly nocturnal and usually stay away from humans. It is rare to come across them while hiking but a possibility exists.
