Annual trip to Tokyo, August 2012. Takaosan No 6 Trail.
Day trip to Takaosan. Last year I walked up via the No 1 trail and came back down along the No 4 trail. This year it was up Inariyama trail and down No 6. (And then up and down No 1 straight afterwards for good measure!) A narrow and wet section on the No 6 follows down a gully for a short distance and felt like a real remote mountain trail. This was the best spot for me for the day.

Tama area is the name of the western part of Tokyo Metropolis. It consists of 26 cities, 3 towns and a village. A lot of people (about 4 milion) live in a eastern half part of the area. However, there are many mountains in the western part of Tama area, and there are very little flat land. Many hiking spots are in the western area, so you can enjoy walking on the trail, camping, and so on. If you see the beautiful mountain scene, you may not believe this is also in Tokyo.
