Mt. Takao hiking with OUIAA


On 28th May 2022, OUIAA members gathered for hiking at JR Takaosanguchi station at 10:00, and we moved towards the hiking entrance of mount Takao. It was a hot and not too crowded Saturday. We ascended by trail №1 and descended from the Inari course back to JR Takaosanguchi station.

Lastly, we took a lunch break at the summit.


We enjoyed an easy hike and took the opportunity of socializing after covid restrictions in Japan had been eased. If you’re also an OU alumnus interested in joining OUIAA outdoor activities, join our Facebook group and follow our future posts on activities.
