Yesterday I decided to explore Mt. Takao with my friend Chelsea. Mt. Takao is a very famous mountain in Tokyo and is visited by many tourists throughout the year. They offer various trails to climb the mountain and host many events.
At the last minute we decided to go and check it out for the first time since we’ve moved here. Since its been the coolest day for the first time in months, we found the experience to be super chill and relaxing on a Wednesday afternoon.
I was not prepared to really climb the mountain so we spent a short time up there and definitely have plans to visit again. Can you imagine the beautiful views during the autumn and winter months?!
After the mountain we explored the surrounding areas and stumbled upon this cool modern building that stuck out like a sore thumb in this natural habitat. The building was called TAKAO 599 MUSEUM and was composed of a cafe, a museum ship, and a small exhibit of the wildlife inhabiting Mt. Takao.
