#489 Mt. Takao

Mount Takao is a 599 meter mountain within the Tokyo city limits.

It is easily accessible by train and takes a mere 1-2 hours to climb.


It has temples on one of the climbing routes – there are 8 hiking paths in total.


The top of the mountain sports a scenic view of Mt. Fuji on a clear day.


It’s super crowded around lunch time – many people hike or take the rope-way up for lunch.

If you fancy a visit early morning on the weekend or a weekday is the best way to have a relaxed hike.
