Mount Mitake is undoubtedly one of Tokyo's top spots for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Located just a few hours away from the center of the metropolis, the 929-meter high peak offers a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. It's also a great place to enjoy the best of autumn's color, and the Mount Mitake Tenku Maple Festival is a celebration of the season.

There will also be some other fun activities scheduled throughout the festival dates, including an ocarina concert on November 3rd (Culture Day), and a violin concert on November 11th.
