A good autumn day in Mitake

On a good autumn sunny day, I went hiking in the western area of Tokyo called “Okutama”. Between JR Ikusabata Station and Mitake Station, there is a hiking course called “Mitake keikoku Yuhodo” along the Tama River. Japanese maple trees were at their best, and the river was shining reflecting the sun.


I came upon an elder couple who kindly told me about the Ontake Shrine, which also offered a great view of autumn leaves. My original plan was walking along the river to Mitake Station and end the trip, but we decided to have an another hiking tour to the shrine. After getting off the Takimoto bus Station, I started climbing up to the shrine instead of catching up the cable car. Along the street to the shrine, there was a street where there are some souvenir shops.


Tips

Between JR Ikusabata Station and JR Mitake Station, there is a hiking course “Mitake keikoku Yuhodo” along the Tama river for about 4 km.


Access

JR Ikusabata Station is about 50 min. by JR Ome line from Tachikawa Station.To go to Ontake Shrine, take a bus from JR Mitake Station. Take the Nishitokyo Bus from Mitake Station on the JR Ome Line bound for Cable-shita and get off at the last stop. Take the cable car from Takimoto Station to Mitakesan Station. Instead of taking the cable car, you can climb up to Ontake Shrine on feet, too. It will take for about an hour.
