Mount Takao (高尾山) west of Tokyo is 599 meters high and has over 2.5 million annual visitors. Many of them seemed to have chosen yesterday as their day to climb the mountain, as the paths were so crowded that we had to wait in line at some of the narrower passages.
The “kouyou” was now in full bloom, unlike on our previous trip to Okutama a fortnight ago.
On some days you can see Mount Fuji from the top of Mount Takao. We couldn’t see it though, despite the weather was clear. But we could see the skyscrapers of Yokohama in the distance.
