Hike at Mt. Takao - Tokyo
Despite its reputation of a concrete jungle, Tokyo is dotted with plenty of green spaces including sprawling parks and zen landscape gardens. If you would like to connect with nature, enjoy beautiful scenery and go on a light hike without leaving the city boundaries, check out Mount Takao which offers fantastic views of the city once you reach the top. Make a reservation for lunch at the nearby Ukai Toriyama, a traditional Japanese restaurant tucked away in the woods which pairs atmospheric ambiance with fantastic food and superb service. It will make for a perfect reward after a long hike.
