What you'll do

Nature in Japan is very rich in the world. Japanese people have traditionally lived together with nature, and believed that God inhabits nature, including rocks, trees, waterfalls, and mountains. Mountains are protected from development and logging. They are worshiped and shrines are built on them. This is one of the reasons why natural areas in Japan remain so rich in flora and fauna. In this experience, we will climb a local mountain, Mount Takao, to enjoy its rich nature protected by the mountain worship, and visit several sacred spots such as large shrines built in the deep mountain. This mountain is very popular as a lot of tourists and hikers visit, but we'll take a relatively quiet route which is easy to meet various plants and animals. During our climb, I'll explain about the wild animals and plants, and how they relate to Japanese culture and history. I'll also lend you binoculars to see some birds or animals closer, and welcome you by providing Japanese unique snacks made with the local plant. Now let's explore the Japanese Nature with me!

Where you'll be

We will go to Mt Takao, about 1 hour from central Tokyo. We'll start at the museum to learn about the local wildlife. Then we'll climb on a trail to visit several sacred spots including waterfall, large temple, etc. After having lunch on the top of about 600 meters high, we'll hike back down on a different trail. We can choose either a restaurant or an outdoor field where we have lunch. *Even if it rains, we can hike by taking cable car.
