Great Day Hikes from city of Tokyo using public transportation
MT. TAKAO – Jataki route in Tokyo

Mt. Takao is one of the most popular and convenient for day hike from central Tokyo. You can choose your route from many in there. Adding that,lift and cable car is available for up and down. Since I have been there some times, I took a route from the back side of the mountain starting at the bus stop of Jataki-guchi. When you walk up to the mountain, the route will merge into Route 3. Then you can walk to the top of the Mt. Takao and enjoy the beautiful view.
This time I walked down to the cable station and had a ride to go down. You sure can walk down if you want. From the station at the foot of the mountain, you can walk to the train station of Takaosanguchi to go home. In the area there is spa to clean you up and relax. It takes only about an hour to get Shibuya from the station. Without worry about going back home after being fed and refreshed.
