Explore Mt.Takao when the weather is allowed you can also see Mt.Fuji from the top. This tour is about 5.5 hours hikes around Mt.Takao. Mt. Takao is part of Tokyo’s Hachioji City and is the most popular climbing spot in the Kanto area, located about 50 kilometers west of the city center. It is a wonderful mountain, designated as Michelin three star along with Mt. Fuji in 2007, and it’s a national park where you can leisurely enjoy mountain walks even on a day trip. The mountain has been especially important to Japanese since 744, when Emperor Shomu commanded the creation of Yakushiji, a famous temple, and thereby encouraged followers to come to the mountain.
