Hiking in mid of Rainy season
We were lucky! In that morning it was cloudy and afternoon sunny on Jun. 2nd, although it was in mid of rainy season.
15 guests from 11 countries (Peru, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Philippines, India, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Chile, Swaziland, South African Republic) participated TENGU hiking tour at Mt.Takao.
The hiking course was below.
Start Cable car → Trail 1st → Yakuoin → the summit and Lunch (around noon)
The path for return was the same way as going up, but we used chair lift.
We had a wrap up meeting near Kiyotaki station and finally took our group picture.
We saw line of priests who were returning from fire ritual in the main hall, around 11:30am. The guests seemed to feel stately, religious, and Japanese. One priest at the end of line showed us blowing a conch and explained in English. Some of guests took pictures together with the priest. It was amazing experiences to them.
Anyway we really enjoyed !!
