About Yorii (寄居町):
North of Tokyo and accessible within two hours lies the quiet town of Yorii. It's an escape from the Tokyo hustle and a place where you can connect with nature in your downtime. Bushwalking and canoeing are among some of the activities you might want to take up. You'll also feel like more of a community member in Yorii, rather than just 'another' foreigner walking the streets of Tokyo.
