Image for View from one of the lookout points at Mount Takao, a small mountain on the western side of Tokyo.

It's a very easy climb at only around 599m high. There are paved paths the whole way up with many shops and cafes along the way as well.

Best to go at sunrise. You can also see Mt. Fuji from the top.

"I am a return visitor to this hotel. The location and price are excellent. The beds are probably too firm for most Americans. As you would expect from a Japanese hotel, the cleanliness and staff attentiveness are superb."…"

Hachioji-Shii is an excellent place to visit For those who would like to visit a slower paced city.

4/5 - Good

It’s a bit off the beaten path for the big tourist spots, rather far from the Imperial Palace for example. But if you’re there on business, there are a lot of great restaurants and shops.
