Hiking Mt. Takao, Hachioji, Tokyo

Enjoying the sights and smells on Mount Takao

By Adeline Ong    - 1 min read

Mount Takao, located within a protected national park, is situated near Tokyo and easily accessible by train.  There are multiple hiking trails, a cable car, and chair lift traversing up and down the mountain.  The hiking trails take you through tree-lined paths and past Buddhist statues and temples.  The color-changing leaves are beautiful if you go in the fall.  Near the top of Mount Takao, there are amazing views of Mount Fuji and Tokyo.  The hikes vary in difficulty level and can be as strenuous or relaxing as you would like as there are many things to see.

I am an Asian American currently living in Hayama, Japan, which is about a 2.5 hour drive south of Tokyo. I love traveling and seeing and experiencing new places, things, foods, and activities. I love taking pictures of everything.
