2nd Nov. 2019 Beginning of November at Mt Takao


    
Today it was first day of three-day weekends in November, 2019, so we started the tour earlier than usual, and directly went to Kiyotaki-station from Takaosanguchi station to avoid long waiting time for getting on the cable car.

We performed orientation for Today’s hiking tour out of top cable car 
station and organized two groups.
The six guests were from five countries; Myanmar, Viet Nam, Egypt, Kenya and Afghanistan.
It was less crowded than we expected, so we could take a leisurely walk under the autumn sky at our own pace.

I enjoyed chat with guests from Viet Nam during the hiking
-       Ho Chi Minh City is commercial city, and Hanoi City is Capital and Governmental city. 
     It looks Osaka and Tokyo in Japan.
I recalled Ivela auripes ; Kiashi-Dokuga when I saw photo of a swarm of white butterflies that fills the sky and ground in Viet Nam.





Today it was fine, but we could not see view of Mt. Fuji from the summit of Mt.Takao due to distant clouds,
We had lunch time near to the summit, and we asked guests to complete the two survey sheets from Hachioji city government and Hachioji Visitors & Convention Association.
We used 4th trail for going down. Sumo-san presented “Lover’s threes” along a way.

In beginning of November autumn leaves are still early usually.









                                                                        Today we could not see colored leaves at all except limited spots.

We used the chair lift for going down. Waiting time for chair lift was 20min. It was shorter than last year (50min).

We wrapped up successfully in front of Kiyotaki station.

We stop by the information center on the way home and Guests replaced the complete survey sheets with novelties; Japanese folding fan and Tin badge.
They graduated from Mt. Takao hiking there!


Thanks to the guides and Supporters everybody returned here without any troubles.
