Finally something of a real hike, although still with a high Disneyland factor. But nice to be out in the hills anyway. Mt. Takao ("Takaosan"), one of the closest places to Tokyo to do a bit of hiking. A rather cloudy day, so unfortunately no spectacular views.
Up along the Inariyama trail (# 6).
A first view towards Tokyo along the way.
Then the view from the top. Mount Fuji should be somewhere over there. Alas, too cloudy...
Down on the other side and a bit further along the Jinbasan trail to find a nice lunch spot.
Then back via trail # 5.
And past the obligatory temples and shrines.
Finally all the way down along the main trail (# 1).
So, I never saw Mt. Fuji on this hike. The best view I've had of it was the day before from the office ;-)
