Mt Takao – Great Hiking Near the City

Mt Takao : Day Trip

Mt. Takao (599 m), called Takao-san in Japanese, is a power spot popular, especially with Tokyoites and tourists alike.

Takao-san was awarded three stars in the 2007 Michelin Green Guide, so you know it’s a special place! 

A day hiking sacred Mt. Takao

Your private tour guide will be waiting for you at your hotel and together you will take a train from Shinjuku Station to Takao-san Mountain.

Take in the scenery and listen to the sounds of nature as you climb the mountain.

Soon enough you will arrive at a quiet temple near the top of the mountain called Yakuou-in, where you can indulge in the temple’s vegetarian lunch offerings (booking required at least one month prior).

While in the neighborhood, you’ll visit “Nihon Monkey House” which is close to the summit. There are sixty cute Nihon monkeys you can watch go about their lives.

Afterwards, you’ll descend the mountain by cable car.

Return to your hotel by private car or taxi.
