Hiking Mount Jinba and Mount Takao

Tokyo, Japan

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the bus stop at Jinba Kogen-shita (Google Map Directions), accessed via bus 32 from Takao train station, and finished at Takaosanguchi train station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 16.8km (10.4mi) in about 6.5hr
  • Grade: Moderate, the paths are well maintained and signage clear. There is a 500m elevation gain to Mount Jinba, but it isn't that bad. From Mount Jinba to Mount Takao the path undulates up and down but is a fairly flat and relaxing walk. From Mount Takao, it is all downhill.
  • Date Walked: 9th of November 2017

The Story

Lush forests, a flathead screwdriver headed horse, a snow-capped Mount Fuji, autumn colour and the crowds at one of Japan's most visited mountains.

Hello, I'm Marc and welcome to metrotrekker.

Be it seeing the city sights, exploring parklands and gardens, urban walks or day-hikes in the city outskirts, the metrotrekker website details walking routes and hiking trails accessible by foot and public transport in metropolitan areas.

The metrotrekker website provides you with all the details required for metropolitan exploration:

  • photos/videos
  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
  • a comments section, so feel free to write about your experiences as well
