Family-friendly, Off the beaten path

Easily one of Tokyo's favorite hiking place, Mt. Takao has a lot to offer the day tripper. Those not wanting to hike all the way up to the summit can take a cable car or a chair lift halfway up. Once on the mountain, there are a handful of snack stalls, a monkey park, and wonderful views of both Tokyo and Mt. Fuji. The Yakuoin Temple is a major destination for many pilgrims.
