Hiking in Mt.Takao is very popular among elder people and girls recently.
Trails are not so rough and everybody can enjoy hiking to top of the mountain.
It's quite good season for hiking there...maple leafs turned a deep red color and it was specially beautiful.
The Michelin Guide Tokyo highly recommended, it marked 3 stars :)
Easy access should be one of the reason why Mt.Takao is very popular.
It just 40min from Shinjyuku by Keio line.
You can have look Shinjyuku's skyscrapers on the way to the top.
Originally Mt.Takao considered a sacred place and also training place for monks.
