It was a clear fine day. At Takaosan-guchi station we met 7 guests, 6 ladies and a gentleman, from the countries of South-East Asia, Middle East and Central Asia.
After self-introduction, we told them several important rules of Mt. Takao. Those are “Trails are for people, others are for plants. So stay on the trails. Collect memories, not flowers. Take garbage back with you and so on.”
At summit, unfortunately, we were not able to see Mt. Fuji because of the early summer mist. There were so many people taking lunch on the ground here and there. So we decided not to take lunch together. We took a lunch break by several groups.
For going down, we took trail no-4, then trail no-1 and chair-lift. Coming back to the foot around 15:00. At the Takaosan-guchi station we advised them how to go back to the place where they were staying, because almost of them were arrived recently and not familiar with transportation here. Then we said “goodbye” to each other and were satisfied to see that they enjoyed today’s hiking.
