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.

Nice and relaxing trails. I took trail 6 up to the top. It was easy route. I saw a small waterfall called Biwataki waterfall on the way up. I took Inari trail on the way back which was a bit more fun and a bit more steep. But overall nice and relaxing trail. Kids friendly so I saw several families with kids. Nice getaway from a big city!

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.
