Mount Takao is only an hour away from Shinjuku by train. At 599m (1965feet) high, even beginners can enjoy an easy day of light trekking. The hike to the top takes approximately an hour and a half. Mount Takao is particularly beautiful in the spring and autumn when one can hike with cherry blossoms or the turning leaves of the fall. For those who prefer not to hike, there's a cable car that takes 12 minutes to reach the top.
