A couple of weeks back, I went for a hike at Mount Takao with my friends Anna, Cheryl and Jason. Cheryl and Jason were in town for a week, and I thought it would be great to go for a hike instead of doing the usual touristy things. Together with Anna, an insane hiker, we happily planned out our trip to Mount Takao.
My boyfriend came along too, but you’ll hardly see him in any of the pictures because he loped off speedily like a mountain deer, leaving us to eat his dust!
Mount Takao is approximately 50 minutes away from Shinjuku station, so it’s a really nice distance for a quick day trip.
At the foot of Mount Takao, there’s a street of little shops selling local specialties. I always love these cute little shops because you always find little inexpensive items to use in your daily life.
Would I go again? Definitely. If you’re in town, and want to head to Mount Takao, hit me up! It’s fun, good exercise and kind to your wallet. What more could you want?
