What we’ll do

The default mountain for this tour is Takao-san (the Japanese name for Mt Takao) but I can take you to pilgrimage trails, Fuji viewing hikes, or other options. Book here with a flat fee. I will take you to the mountain from Shinjuku by train, which takes at least an hour or two. Takao-san is very popular due to its easy access, the onsen, its low elevation (about 600m), its blossoms and foliage,…

What else you should know

All of my day-hike experiences are suitable for beginners. But the mountain and nature must always be respected. These are authentic hikes. Please take responsibility for your own safety.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
I will provide snacks for the hike. Please let me know if you have any allergies or requirements.
Drinks
I can heat us up a sake at the top to enjoy the views and reflect on the hike and have a chat about Japanese life and culture
Equipment
This is a simple hike and not a lot is required - if you need any hiking equipment I can see if I have spares you can borrow

What to bring

If you wish to take the forest trail up or down please bring shoes with some grip, something you can get a little wet or dirty.
Please bring a light backpack for extra layers for warmth, water, personal belongings, or extra snacks you need.
Please look after your own health and safety and take any medication or inhalers you require.
Please do not wear jeans, heels, or anything too casual unless you intend to take the ropeway.
Please do not bring suitcases. There are small coin lockers at the bottom where you can pay to store anything you don’t wish to hike with.
