She loves hiking.

Chrissy Hagerty revealed that she absolutely loves to hike, and hey, who doesn’t? While living in Tokyo, Hagerty said she became something of an “urban hiker.”

“I do a lot of ‘urban hiking’ in Tokyo,” she said.

“On a daily basis, I traverse downtown from the grounds of the Imperial Palace to Tokyo Tower to Ginza — there is a wealth of architecture, fashion and food to take in walking the streets of this city. Outside of Tokyo, Japan is a mountainous nation, so there are plenty of great outdoor opportunities and amazing vistas throughout the country.”

One thing that totally took her by surprise about hiking in Japan? The plethora of vending machines that pepper the area.

“One interesting side note about Japan: vending machines are everywhere,” she revealed. “You can even find them at trailheads and other spots in the country. It’s very convenient — especially if you forget to bring water on a hike!”
