My friend and I visited Mt Mitake on a day trip from Tokyo in November 2015. We took the JR Chuo Line from Shinjuku to Tachikawa, then the Itsukaichi line to the end of the line: Musashi-Itsukaichi. We picked up water, pork buns and onigiri at the kombini at the station were walking by 10:30am. We walked through the picturesque... More

We came here for the autumn foliage and stayed the night on the mountain at a Japanese family-run inn. A very scenic and peaceful getaway! We combined it with a day in Okutama, which has even better autumn leaves. From Mitake Station, the bus stop to the cable car is to the left up the street. Because the bus was... More

This is a great place! About 2 hrs by train from Tokyo, but quite simple to get there. When you get to Mitake station take a bus to the gondola and I would recommend taking the gondola up to the halfway point. Definitely check out the waterfalls as they are the highlight in my opinion. I highly recommend this as... More

Worth seeing and it was easy to access. dont think that it is a real hiking,we can reach half of the peak by cable car and then enjoyed some scenic view ( including Tokyo skytree from... More

Mt. Mitake is a train ride west of Tokyo, not difficult to get to and a gateway to great hikes and scenic views. I was lucky enough to visit during the cherry blossoms and it was amazing! If you want to escape from the hustle of the city, just go. There is a tram to take to the top of... More

We stayed on the mountain for 2 nights at komadori sanso. There are so many beautiful sights to see and clear fresh mountain air. There is a walk that takes about 2/2.5hrs that guides you through some beautiful waterfalls. If you are not a seasoned hiker, I would still highly recommend this walk. Just take a water bottle and some... More

We hiked Mt. Mitake after Mt. Fuji, so for us it was an easy hike. The trees are huge and beautiful, we enjoyed the quiet mountain village and the Shinto and Buddhist shrines and the waterfall. We participated in Takiygo training and really enjoyed participating in the spiritual ceremony.

I had just two days in tokyo, and after day one I was ready to get out of the city. I have always been fascinated by japanese rural landscapes, and was very pleased with Mt. Mitake. From shrines, to a small village, with a gorgeous view of Tokyo in one direction and a mountain view that perfectly matched my conception... More

Had been to Mitake-san in early May and trust me, the freshness in the air can literally be felt. The trails are amazing and surprises you with some of the breathtaking landscapes quite often. Please pack some eatables from Tokyo/Highway Pit-stops. There is a small store at the base station but can offer only the basic eatables. Hiking shoes necessary... More
