Kahoko expertly guided me through the labyrinth of Tokyo’s metro system for our day’s excursion to Mt. Takao. First by subway, then train, then cable car and finally we used our own two feet walking on a very civilized paved path to reach our destination. Even though our weather was picture perfect with blue skies and puffy white clouds, Mt. Fuji eluded us from the summit of Mt. Takao. That said, the sheer serenity of this location and the exquisite views make this a very worthwhile tour. Kahoko is a fantastic guide with knowledge of Tokyo and all things Japanese from food to art to architecture to history and culture. So in addition to a great hike, I learned much about Japanese culture – past and present. Thanks Kahoko for a fantastic and fulfilling day!
