Though it rained the previous day around Mt.Takao, it was unbelievably nice weather this day. We welcomed one young lady from Singapore.
We met at Takaosanguchi station at 9:10 and introduced each other. Then we talked about the sweeper boy and flying squirrel at the foot of mountain and took the cable car to the middle.
We guided through the trail #1 to Yakuo-in temple, talking about Octopus cedar tree, rich nature of mountain, 108 human desperation in Buddhism, Izuna-Daigonngen.
At the main hall of Yakuo-in, we talked about Buddhism and Shintoism in Japan.
Then we went up to the top of the mountain, took a photo together and had lunch.
Mt.Fuji was seen with some cloud on the top.
We took trail #4 and walked through the quiet forest. We chose chair lift to return.
At the lift station we enjoyed gorgeous autumn leaves like the photo above.
Finally we visited 599 museum and watched a projection mapping.
The tour went through in the friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
