Magnificent Colors of Mt. Mitake

Enjoy a historic shrine & Tokyo's best beginner hike

By Sandra Isaka    - 1 min read

Travel to the top of Mitake-san on a scenic cable car to visit a shrine that has been a place of worship for over 2000 years. Beside the shrine is a trail heading down into the 'Rock Garden', a narrow, forested valley containing a picturesque stream, moss covered stones, and lovely waterfalls. The area is especially beautiful in the autumn, when red, orange, and yellow overtake the normally deep green forest.
