高尾山 - Mt. Takao

After a long Saturday night with karaoke all night at some yakuza place in Shinjuku, I went home, slept two hours and then went to climb Mt. Takao in the outskirts of Tokyo with Natsu on Sunday. The weather was cloudy but very humid and about 30 degrees, which set it up to be a perfect sweat fest.


Takao-san is only about 600 meters high and is probably the most crowded mountain in Japan. We took the toughest, steep course up, but even then we had to queue almost all the way up. I brought my GPS logger, but I forgot to turn it on until we had actually climbed Takao and were continuing on to another mountain. Here is a map of our route from that point anyway:

After Takao-san and Shiroyama, we hiked down to Sagamiko lake. It was a nice place, but it was getting dark and the weather was turning worse.


It was a good day. Afterwards I was really tired, so I went home and then me, Kasimir and Nobuya went to a super sento for a hot bath. I slept like a baby that night, until ten o’clock Monday morning.

    The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could possibly repair if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
