‘How to enjoy Mt.TAKAO in Tokyo’
I visited Mt.TAKAO, 55 minutes from SHINJUKU station.

If you get off at TAKAOSAN-GUCHI station, that is the base of the hiking.
Mt.TAKAO is the most popular mountain to hike in the world 3 million people go up every year, even small children and old people can walk up using cable car and lift.

There are many facilities like , restaurants, shops , museums, Onsen at the base area.

It’s only 599m tall but there are several trekking routes and you can feel deep nature easily because whole mountain area is preserved carefully to keep the nature.

You can hear the birds singing, the distant view of Tokyo city from the observatories and full of green on the way.
