Michelin 3 stars tourist spot Mt.Takao !

We went hiking to Mt. Takao with beautiful autumn leaves.

There were many people climbing the mountain this day.

Mt. Takao was registered as a 3 stars destination by Michelin Tourism Japan.

It is a treasure trove of nature only 1 hour away from the center of Tokyo.

You can take the cable car or lift to the middle of the mountain.

But walking up the mountain is also a wonderful way to experience the rich nature.
