Mt. Takao of the autumn foliage season is very lively
About 1 hour by train from the heart of Tokyo, the altitude is 599 meters so you can enjoy climbing without hesitation, so the number of hikers in the year is said to be the world’s number one with more than 2.6 million people. And the most popular season for hikers is the autumn foliage season throughout the year.
There are many autumn foliage spots on the trails, but in particular the autumn foliage around Kiyotaki station and in the precincts of the Takao-san Yakuo-in are exceptionally colorful.
Also, There are many Japanese maple (Oo-Momiji and Iroha-Momiji) along the cable cars, which is a autumn foliage spot that only the cable car users can enjoy.
The autumn foliage on the summit is also highlighted, but the autumn foliage seen with Mt. Fuji is especially beautiful.
The best time to see the autumn foliage is usually around mid-November at the summit, around late November at the foot of Mt. Takao.
