About
Walk up a stream and discover a religious cave! Been to Mt.Takao before? You have not seen the real Mt.Takao until you have seen what is introduced on this tour. The trail on which your otomo tour guide will take you on this tour is the 6th trail which is intertwined with a stream. You will pass a cave which is said to have been created by a famous Japanese monk called Kobo Daishi and a waterfall where you can watch monks training, called the Biwa Waterfall. To get to the top, you must walk through a stream, over stepping stones, and also climb a steep set of wooden stairs. Once you get to the top, the views are spectacular. When the sky is clear, you can see all the way across to Tokyo Bay, where the stream that you just climbed ends up!

Private Tour to Mt Takao
Aug 2019
Started my trekking to Mt Takao around 11am. My guide recommended a shady path so it was a cooling hike and I enjoyed the nature. We had lunch on the way back - Tororo Soba - one of the best I have tasted so far.I also visited the trick museum on my own which is near the train station. It is rather interesting.

Hi 602janna, Thank you for your comment! Even though Mt. Takao is popular in Japan, yet it is still a minor mountain in the world. However, it is glad to hear that you enjoyed the trekking and nature! Also, Troro soba is one of the Japanese traditional foods which you would only be able to try in Japan! It must be really nice experience! Again, thank you so much for your comment and choosing us.
