Just 51 minutes west of Shinjuku lies Mount Takao and the Yakuo-in shrine. There are several different nature trails to the top, which is about 599 meters (1965 feet) high. Here, you can relax over a beer and look out over the metropolis below to the east and Mount Fuji to the west. Recommended routes are six along the valley, going up, and five, walking down, which take about 50 and 70 minutes respectively. For those less inclined to hike up the sloping inclines there is a chairlift and a cable car, each costing a few hundred yen, that take you two thirds of the way up. All in all, an exhilarating experience.
The volcanic Mount Fuji is Japan's tallest peak as its summit is at a height of 3,776.24 meters (12,389 feet). This ethereal beauty is an icon of Japan's natural and cultural heritage, greatly revered and even deemed sacred as per Shinto beliefs. The near-perfect conical mountain has inspired thousands of paintings, poems and other artwork, its pinnacle dressed in snow for almost five months of the year. Shrines, temples and monasteries line the lower slopes of this active volcano, riddled with lakes, forests and pristine gardens along routes well-traversed by pilgrims. Mount Fuji is also a popular destination for mountaineers, with several attempts made to summit the volcano each year. The most recent eruption was over two centuries ago in 1707, yet the threat of disaster is ever-present. Often draped in a cloak of clouds and bathed in a golden hue at sunset, the otherworldly vision of Mount Fuji is not mired by this choleric side, however.

The hours of operation and the admission fees vary depending on each facility. If you wish to go there, please check the website for more information.
