We had a wonderful afternoon hike at Mt. Takao two weekends ago.
Cherry blossoms were beautiful at the Cable Car Station.
The Cable Car is slanted to accommodate the steep slope.
A path leading to the top.
There were signs like this one - warning climbers not to feed monkies.
The main Buddhist temple of the mountain.Yakuo-In.
A Shinto shrine resides in this temple.
The top of the mountain.
The view at the top.
A beautiful cherry blossom by a tea house.
Walking in the mountain was wonderful.
A typical of the view of the trail.
There was a suspension bridge on the way back to the cable car station.
It is not very far from Tokyo - I highly recommend to visit it.
