About the Course – Mt. Takao

Mount Takao is one of most famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo. Many tourists and local people visit this mountain for a day hike.
In this mountain, there are 7 hiking courses. Each course has a different feature. For example, the 1st trail is the main course of the mountain. Most hikers take this trail. This trail is all paved and there are some shops, restaurants, temples and shrines on the trail. It’s like more touristic course.
The trail No.6 is not paved, so it’s like a more mountain trail. You can feel nature on this trail. The most interesting part of the trail is a stream trail called “Tobiishi”. You walk in a very tiny and narrow stream by stepping on stones.
On this page, I introduce a model course; Trail No.6 on the way to the top of mountain and Trail No.1 on the way back.
