Thought I would show my favorite place to take a break from the concrete and humidity of Tokyo. I used to love to take day trips to Mitake.
This is the beginning of the hiking trail.
Nice to see some daikon hanging around.
Some tengu sculptures hanging out in a shop window. I always take pictures of stuff I want to buy but feel like I shouldn't spend the money .
The forests of Mitake are famous for momonga or flying squirrel.
There are several trails where you can explore the forest. I was really tempted to just reveal everything of interest here but I think I will just leave you with this last picture. I highly recommend a visit to Mt. Mitake!
