Mt Takao

“Mega Shaved Ice”

Our hike to Mt Takao

We could not have experienced more beautiful weather on our hike to Mt Takao today with Sarah, Rachel, Sam and Emma.

We started off from Central Tokyo early, and chatted on the journey about their time in Tokyo, and how to get the most out of it.

Originally our plan was to summit Mt Takao, then head across the ridge to Kobotoke-Shiroyama and then descend to Lake Sagami. However, encouraged by the wonderful sunshine, and still feeling strong after a couple of hours, they asked me to modify the route and extend the hike all the way to Mount Jinba.

After descending, we made our way towards the Takao station area, where a wonderful onsen and cold beer awaited us. Phrase of the day: “Mega Shaved Ice”. Thanks to Sarah, Rachel, Sam and Emma for a great day with Maction Planet!
