Great place to visit. Gondola ride or chair lift part way (requires tickets; or walk). Nice walk with much history, nature, and food to purchase. Can see Tokyo and Mount Fuji (if the weather is clear) from the top. There's a suspension bridge (not necessary to cross). Many things to see. Great restaurants at the base on the mountain.

Wonderful temple, large space and mighty buildings. Arrive early to enjoy with less crowd. Not as touristy as other temples, which is a plus.

Great spot for a beer and noodles. Once you make the walk up the mountain, you are going to be thirsty and probably a bit hungry. We ordered a couple beers and two bowls of udon.
