Mt Takao (Takaosan) number 6 trail up and number 4 down to 1 at the monkey zoo. Then took a side way back directly to JR Takao station. It is mostly moderate but it gets steep near the top. Also coming down can be hard on your knees. Watch out for loose rock and slippery leaves.

We took trail 1, paved, to the top. it was a bit crowded but had all the sights. We took trail 6 down which was a dirt trail yo the forest. It descended down to a stream and you actually walk in the stream bed for a little bit. Trail 6 was much quieter and enjoyable.
