Id love to give it a perfect 5, but dang those stairs. There's about 500 steps. You can pretty much gamble here.

It's a temple about 3/4 of the way to the top of Mt Takao. We were there during Golden Week along with apparently most of the residents of Tokyo, so it was very busy. Quite a lot of buildings and food vendors around – a lot more than you'd expect at the top of a “mountain”. But nice to stop for a break during the ascent.

There are not many thing to say about this. if you have a religion, come and enjoys it yourselt. In case that you have not, also just come to see and learn something new. Since the life is a endless travel.

The walk up was relatively easy, the path is mostly paved unless you take a less walked path. Spring and fall are very popular here.

This is found on the trails in Mount Takao after the cable car station. Using the stairs, although it's quite a climb gives you the best view and the experience here. Optionally you can take the longer route and avoid the stairs.
