Views Around Mt Takao - Japan

Mt Takao Hike

Mt Takao
Mt Takao adalah salah satu obyek wisata yang cukup menarik untuk dikunjungi di Jepang.
Berhubung saya sudah pernah ke gunung Fuji saat kecil, jadi kali ini saya malah lebih tertarik untuk mengunjungi gunung satu ini.
Perjalanan ke sini memakan waktu sekitar satu hingga dua jam, saat itu kita menggunakan bis yang disediakan tour lokal untuk ke sini. Biayanya cukup murah, hanya sekitar Rp 200.000 dan kita mendapat kesempatan untuk berkenalan dengan penduduk Jepang yang ikut menemani turis selama perjalanan.


MT Takao is one interesting place to visit, since I've been to Fuji before this trip, I decided to try another mountain nearby for this time. Hence we decided to go to Mount Takao.
The trip here took about one to two hours using bus, our bus was supplied by a local tour in Tokyo, which were quite cheap, costing about Rp 200.000.
Aside from a guide and bus, we also get a chance to mingle with some Japanese locals which also partake in the excursion.







Mount Takao terletak di kota Hachioji. Tingginya sekitar 599 meter dan lokasinya berjarak satu jam dari Tokyo. Populer untuk tempat hiking, dengan delapan jalur hiking dan dikunjungi lebih dari 2.5 juta orang tiap tahunnya.
Di gunung ini terdapat kuil budha, Takaosan Yakuoin Yukiji.


Mount Takao (高尾山 Takao-san?) is a mountain in the city of Hachiōji, Tokyo, Japan. It is protected within Meiji no Mori Takao Quasi-National Park.
Standing 599 metres (1,965 ft) tall and located within an hour of downtown Tokyo, it is a popular hiking spot, with eight hiking courses and more than 2.5 million annual visitors. The Tama Forest Science Garden is also located at the mountain's base.
Mount Takao is closely associated with tengu, minor kami from Japanese folklore, and the daitengu Naigubu. A Buddhist temple, Takaosan Yakuōin Yūkiji, is located on the mountain.

Dipercaya sebagai gunung yang keramat, tempat ini juga menjadi tempat pemujaan selama 1000 tahun. Kuil Yakuoin berada di puncak gunung. Orang biasanya datang ke sini untuk beribadah pada dewa Shinto-Budhist (Tengu) untuk mendapat keberuntungan. Patung dewa dengan hidung panjang dan paruh gagak bisa ditemukan dalam kuil-kuil di sekitar gunung..
Karena kedekatannya dengan pusat Tokyo, Takaosan / Gunung Takao ini amat ramai pengunjung pada akhir minggu dan pada saat pertengahan November, ketika tempat ini menjadi spot populer untuk menikmati musim gugur (koyo).
Kalau ingin menikmati suasanan yang lengang lebih baik mengunjungi tempat ini saat hari kerja.



Considered a sacred mountain, Takaosan has been a center of mountain worship for more than 1000 years. The attractive temple Yakuoin stands near the mountain's top. Visitors pray there to Shinto-Buddhist mountain gods (tengu) for good fortune. Statues of the gods, one with a long nose and one with a crow beak, can be found at the temple and all over the mountain.
Due to its proximity to central Tokyo, Takaosan can get very crowded on weekends and during the second half of November, when the mountain becomes one of Tokyo's most popular koyo (autumn foliage) spots. Consequently, if you are looking for a break not only from the concrete but also the crowds of Tokyo, you are well advised to visit Takaosan during the week.

Mt Takao
Pengunjung ke gunung Takao bisa memulai hiking dari kaki gunung, atau menggunakan kursi gantung yang mengerek kita setengah etape perjalanan. Sistem ini memiliki empat stasiun, bedanya 150 meter di bagian puncak.



Visitors to Mount Takao can choose to start climbing from the base, or take a funicular or ropeway ride halfway up the mountain. The Takaotozan Railway operates both of these services. The system nominally has four stations—two each for the funicular and the ropeway. However, the distance between the pairs of stations is only a few dozen metres (at the base of the mountain) and approximately 150 metres (at the top of the services, which are themselves about a 30-minute scenic uphill walk from the top of Mount Takao itself), so they can essentially both be thought of as coming from and going to the same place.

Untuk menggunakan kursi gantungnya per orang perlu membayar 470 yen atau sekitar Rp 50.000 untuk sekali jalan, dan 900 yen atau sekitar Rp 95.000 untuk pulang pergi.

To use the ropeway, you need to pay 470 yen or Rp 50.000 for a one way trip. Where for a round trip you'll need to fork out 900 yen or Rp 95.000.







Keio Railways offer the cheapest and fastest connections to Takaosan. Direct semi-limited express trains, which take about 50 minutes and 370 yen, leave the underground Keio Shinjuku station every 20 minutes. Takaosanguchi Station, the train's terminal station, is located at the foot of the mountain.
The JR alternative is by Chuo Line from Shinjuku to Takao Station (540 yen, about 50 minutes), where you transfer to the Keio Line and ride one more station to Takaosanguchi Station (120 yen, 2 minutes).
