I know the idea of visiting a stone quarry while you’re in Japan probably isn’t on the top of your to do list. Well if you want to sense of discovery — as if you found the lost world, this would be a great day trip.
A couple of hours north of Tokyo in Gunma, you’ll find a little abandoned rock quarry with nature overtaking it — making for a great escape from the bustle of Tokyo, and an interesting hike.
“There’s something special and mystical about walking through a wood or forest and discovering a lost world of sorts but that is exactly what happened at this place just a couple of hours north of Tokyo.” (TokyoFox)
