Mt Takao

If you ask a local about Japan’s nature their response will often be “Japan has no nature”. And yet, just a 45 minute train ride from Shinjuku, the heart of Tokyo, you’ll find yourself at the base of a small mountain called Mt Takao. To reach the summit you can use one of the six hiking trails which will take roughly 90 minutes. Or for just 480 Yen you can use the cable car and reach the top in half the time. On a clear day Mt Takao offers stunning views of Tokyo, Kanagawa, Mt Fuji and other surrounding mountains. As Mt Takao is one of the closest natural recreation areas to central Tokyo it’s a popular place to see the “Autumn Colours”, so if you’re planning to visit within the next month make sure you’re prepared for the large crowds.
