Mitake, Japan The Japanese countryside calls to me in a way unlike any other place that I have been. This is only about an hour and a half outside of Tokyo, and is absolutely worth the visit. If you were to follow the river up into the mountains, you would reach a veritable outdoor playground. Which is precisely where I went!
