  • Mt Takao changes faces every season. Again we availed of the Keio Mt Takao train/tram/chairlift package deal from the automatic ticket machine at Shinjuku. It's convenient and saves us money. Less...  more »

  • An easy climb for people who wish to go for a walk to the top of a mountain but don't want to break a sweat. That being said, there are tougher paths but go at your own risk. There are some food stalls at the peak and at the cable car station. I would advise to take the cable car which takes you halfway up Mount Takao, and walk from there.
  • One of the nicest hike ever. So much too see along the way. There are stores, restaurants, dango stand, shrines and temples. The biggest surprise of all, there is a wonderfully monkey park where for a fee you can watch a whole bunch of monkeys in there habitat, playing and interacting with one another, wonderful to watch. We stayed there for a hour watching their life in awe.
