What you'll do
We will hike the beautiful Mount Takao. It features diverse wildlife, more than 1,600 plant species, a large Buddhist temple, and an old Shinto shrine. The mountain is steeped in folklore, so we may catch sight of long-nosed forest goblins or Tengu. I will share my extensive knowledge of this mountain, which I've climbed over 100 times in the last 20 years. I can therefore show you secret animal trails, little-known tree species, and also share obscure folklore stories about the temple. The nature of Mount Takao reflects our traditional culture, and I want you to feel the soothing spiritual power of the mountain. You don't need special equipment because Mount Takao is safe to climb. It also features hot springs, a cable car, chairlift, and restaurant where we can have lunch.
I will share with you the history of Mount Takao because I have climbed it over 100 times for the last 20 years and no one loves this mountain more than I do. There are no words to describe the beauty here, in any season, even winter. I want to share my love of nature and of this mountain with you, along with Japanese spiritual and traditional culture.
