Ichinokura valley is very beautiful and very easy - Fitness 0-1 (1 hour there, 1 hour back). Technical 1 (very easy path or road option). Highly recommended and best season except for snow trip.


Tanigawadake peak is Fitness 2 (expect over 4 hours total round trip) ... there are steep sections and some safety chains (but hiking only) so it is Technical 2.
Better to be average hiker/average fitness.  or sports type person.

In Kanto it is a specila trip.
