Some of the views you can see while climbing Mt. Takao.
Before reaching the summit of Mt. Takao, you will be able to pass the Yakuo Temple.
A long long time ago, I was basking in the sun , digging my root into the sweet earth then one day I heard the humans that they were going to cut me down because my roots were blocking their way but I still want to live. I want to see the world and reach for the sky and have the birds perched on me. Listen to them sing. See winter. See summer. See how the season change. You might think that this is selfish of me, but the forest is my home and I want to live my life so I decide to give the humans what they want and move my roots out of the road. Now they consider me something lucky and I think I am 🙂
Every year there is a time when the Sun seems to set at the center of the crater of Mt. Fuji. During that time, Mt. Fuji looks like a diamond. Last December , together with Clint, Sarah and Masae we set out to Mt. Takao to witness this very special event. It was sunny and clear when we started from the Takosanguchi Station so we were very hopeful but unfortunately, on the side of Mt. Fuji, it was still cloudy.
