Today we had 9 guests from Bangladesh, Ecuador, El Salvador, Malaysia, Mongolia and Somalia.
Though the autumnal tint of leaves seems to be approaching to its end, the mountain still attracts many visitors and we had to wait for 15minutes or so to get on the cable car. But once on the cable car, we found that the 15minutes waiting was nothing, seeing the magnificent red and yellow under the sun all around.
|red & yellow all around|
We took the trail No.1 to the summit, visiting various points of interest on the way including Yukien garden and Yakuoin Temple, which were ablaze with autumn colors and therefore the most popular places here during autumn season.
After enjoying at the summit the view of Mt.Fuji in a thin veil of clouds, we had lunch, surrounded by autumn colors.
We climbed down via Trail No.４, crossing the famous suspension bridge, which is one of the most popular spots in the mountain in all seasons.
Mt.Takao is an attractive mountain all through the year, showing its different beauty in each season. Yet I dare say that visiting here on a fine warm day during mid-November to early-December like today is the best and I hope all the guests enjoyed the tour.
