12th Mt. Takao hike

I went to Mt. Takao hiking area. It was 12th times this year, and for the first time in over one month. The weather was not very good. It was cloudy and stuffy. But I can't stand more.

This time I went to Mt. Jimba from Mt. Takao as follows.

Mt. Takao Station -> Mt. Takao -> Iccho-daira pass ->  Mt. Shiroyama -> Kobotoke pass -> Mt. Kagenobu -> Mt. Dodokoro -> Myoo pass -> Mt. Jimba -> Fujino Station

I started from Mt. Takao Station at 6:20 am.

Mt. Takao is very popular hiking area in Tokyo. Over one million people visit a year. You don't need special hiking goods. Many people get the top wear T-shirts, jeans, sneakers and with a  small backpack. But the trail from Mt. Takao to Mt. Jimba isn't so easy. There are a lot of ups and downs, especially Mt. Kagenobu trail is long and tough.

I reached the top of Mt. Jimba at 11:10 am. I ate three pieces of onigiri(rice ball) for lunch. Onigiri is very popular lunch dish in Japan.

I reached Fujino Station at 1:40 pm. It was 7 hours and 30 minutes. The distance is about 20 Km, 12.4 miles. It was a very good and enough distance for me.
