Climbing Mount Takao: A Delightful Escape from Tokyo
   


Tokyo's parks are small patches of greenery in an astoundingly huge urban sprawl, and while some of them are incredibly beautiful, they cannot truly be said to be pockets of nature.

They are often for looking at, rather than being in, and visitors may stroll along paved and roped off paths, but not lounge on grassy knolls or get lost in swathes of woodland รก la Central Park.

Many Tokyoites therefore find it necessary to get out of the city from time to time to get reacquainted with Mother Nature. Lucky for us, there are many natural areas within a few hours' train ride from the main transport hubs. Among the most favorite, both for its proximity and its family-friendly appeal is Mount Takao, better known at Takao-san.
