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

The hike to the shrine was along winding paved streets. From the shrine, many different levels of trails are available. You'll enjoy the forests and open vistas. It's an easy 1 hour train ride to Ome from Tokyo.

Mitakesan is a wonderful day trip from Tokyo. Approximately 60km away, Mitake is a beautiful area of forests, mountains and clean, crisp air. Once you reach tiny Mitake station, you take the bus outside through the village and up (always up!) to the cable car base station. The walk from the top bus stop to the cable car station is...

Last week, I climbed three of the peaks in the park during a strenuous day-hike with my friend, which began at the village of Kori (low altitude) and then took a relentless steep climb upwards. I didn't think I was at all unfit, but getting to the top of Mitake really took it out of me! Not for the faint-hearted,... More
