    Hachioji Minamino Station on the JR Yokohama Line

    Course: appr. 9 km / 2:35 hours

    Sights: (Links to sights included on my personal page !!)

    (2) Koizumi Homestead (小泉家屋敷 - Koizumi-ka Yashiki)

    General info: "Ekipo" (えきぽ) which means "station walk" is a Japanese made-up word from "eki" (駅 - えき) - station and "sanpo" (さんぽ) - walk. JR East uses this word for promoting walking routes of appr. 2 hours each around many of it's stations. More info (Japanese only) can be found here: http://www.jreast.co.jp/tabidoki/walkrally_ekipo/. Using the App you can "check-in" at each sight and after completing the route you'll get a "stamp" displayed and be added to the ranking.

    Chair Lift

    by salisbury3933 Written Jul 12, 2008

    From the entrance to Takao-san, the chair lift(or cable car) will take you a lot of the way to the top, although not all the way.

    It's quite a long journey, and the scenery is nice. Once you have reached the top, it's about 40 minutes on foot to the summit.

    900 yen return.

    Getting to Takao san

    by salisbury3933 Written Jul 12, 2008

    The entrance to Takao-san is easily reached on the Keio line.

    We used the JR Chuo line as far as Takao, and then transferred to the Keio line which goes one stop to Takao-san guchi, from where you can walk all the way up the mountain, or get a cable car or lift part of the way up.
