Nice and "very Japan" view. Many routes you can choose to climb up to the top of the mountain. Not a difficult route so it is also suitable for elementary hikers and even children. We went there in the fall season. Trees are in red, yellow and orange and we could take a lot of great pictures of this colorful mountain. Peaceful place with fresh air and easily access.

Nice temple on Mt takao. At noon, you can watch the monk procession. Don't cross the head monk.

Beautiful temple to visit along the path up to Mount Takao. Beautiful carvings around the temple, but some of them looked faded. Probably time for some touch-up.

This temple is a must to visit, it s almost on the top of a small mountain, the path is walkable by mom with baby trail and people with disabilities. So all the people can enjoy it. Several corners where to check your fortune, to pray, to eat a kind of mochi with soy souce for 150¥ and to buy so many type of sweetness. Instrumental music is playing all day on
