|Welcome to my page
I am an English guide
in charge of Mt.Takao.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
Tailor-made one day hiking to Mt. Takao, in a small group.
・Mt. Takao is located about 40 Km west of the city center of Tokyo, and we can go there only in about 1 hour by train. It is the most popular hiking spot for people in Tokyo.
・The attraction of Mt.Takao includes rich nature where 1,500 kinds of wild plants live, a Buddhist temple called “Takaosan Yakuoin” whose history can dates back more than 1,000 years ago, and many hiking trails.
・Number of guests I guide in a group is limited up to 3, because I want you to feel the nature and history of Takao close.
・A popular course is as follows: We walk from the Keio line Takaosan-guchi station to the cable car station. Go to the middle of the mountain by a cable car. Then walk to the top of the mountain in about 2 hours, enjoying highlights of nature and history. The road is easy to walk. We will return to Takaosan-guchi station with the same route. Total time required for this course will be about 5 hours.
・For those who want to enjoy Takao’s rich nature more, we walk for about 3 hours enjoying the nature of the season, though the trail becomes a litter harder.
・If you are interested in Takao’s history, we walk slowly and I will talk a lot about the historical sites along the road. It will take about 3 hours from the middle to the top of the mountain.
・For those who want to walk more, I recommend a trail from the train station up to the top, without using a cable car.
・Hiking starts from Takaosan-guchi station of the Keio line. If you can come to takaosan-guchi station yourself, I’ll wait for you outside the ticket gates.
・If you want me to pick up and send you to the hotel, I will accept that work at an additional fee.
・Please understand that I may ask you to change course or cancel hiking when the weather is bad.
