Under COVID, we were thinking of somewhere remote by trying to stay away from the crowded place but we were wrong. The queues for cable car and lifts were too long so we decided to take a path up to the summit. It was bit challenging for my 6 year old daughter but we managed to climb! It was more surprising that the summit was as crowded as the bottom. Unfortunately we could not see Mt Fuji but we were happy to make it to the peak. It was great for one day hiking!

Pleasant day trip but a bit more pricy by train compared to other day trips from downtown Tokyo. Several nice walks and beautiful views of the city but the view of Fuji-Yama wasn't brilliant as I went in early-mid summer and its best seen in Autumn or Winter under clearer skies. Well recommended and the trails have different degrees of difficulty to chose from.

Mt Takao changes faces every season. Again we availed of the Keio Mt Takao train/tram/chairlift package deal from the automatic ticket machine at Shinjuku. It's convenient and saves us money. Less than an hour away, Mt Takao is a totally different world from the cement canyons of urban Tokyo.

I came here with a good friend who had been before. I read everything on line and it all said that if you use route one it's easy "like walking in the city"...it's not. If you are not fit, are overweight or asthmatic you may find it quite challenging. That said, it is worth the effort. Just to note my friend did the whole thing on foot when she came before...so it is possible if that kind of thing floats your boat! Route one takes you up in the funicular (which is called a cable car here) to half way-ish. Then you just follow everyone else along paved paths, up steps to the summit at 599m. The day I was there it was packed at every stage, but it was clear so we were greeted by a lovely view of Fuji-San and about a million people trying to take pictures of themselves at the summit marker thing and picnicking. There are lots of stops on the way up/down with food, drink, shrines and even a monkey park! On the way back down we had to wait for around 90 mins for the funicular back to the base. It was ridiculous. Soooo many people, over organised queuing system and nowhere to wait. It was a rubbish end to what was a lovely day. Glad I went though.

It is a 599.15m high with easy road to the peak, always prepare yourself with comfortable clothing and enough water.
