One of the Three Mountains of Boso

Along with Mt. Nokogiri and Mt. Kiyosumi, Mt. Kano is one of Chiba's Three Mountains of Boso .

It's Chiba's second-highest mountain at 379 meters high and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Tokyo Bay. It's less than two hours by train from Tokyo and is part of the Minami-Boso Quasi-National Park.

How to Get There

Take the JR Keiyo-Uchibo Line limited express from Tokyo to Sanuki-machi Station, then take the bus from Sanuki-machi Station to Kano-zan. In total, the journey takes less than two hours.

Kujukutani Valley

Views from the top look down over the thick pine forested Kujukutani Valley to the misty blue hills beyond. The hazy scenery was the object of Japanese artist Kaii Higashiyama's famous piece "Afterglow."
