Day Eight

According to the Japan fall colors calendar, Mt. Takao should be beautiful this time of year, so I decided to check it out.

Mt. Takao is about an hour away by train from downtown Tokyo

On the mountain are several temples.

The main road up the mountain is very steep and quite busy. You can take a tramway or a ropeway up the mountain, but the queue's where ginormous so I decided to walk. Step away from the main road and it's beautifull and quiet.

Every once and a while you can peek through the trees and see the villages below.

It started to get dark, so I headed back to Tokyo and found myself a nice burger place nearby. Then it was back to the hotel to give my legs some rest.
