If given the opportunity to travel Japan, one should always take advantage of the limitless natural beauty that surrounds the high-tech metropolitan areas. Whether you're visiting Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo or any other city, nature is never far away. Sometimes it's more raw, more feral, and other times it's a bit more... gentrified.
Takaosan is a beautiful mountain, with lovely hiking trails and glorious views of the nearby forests and valleys, but it tends to fall into the second category. Relatively close to Tokyo, it's an easy day trip to tackle. I've already covered the experience in detail, this post is all about the photos!
