General Information

Sacred Mountain Hike 1hr from Shinjuku

¥6,000
per person
We will meet at the exit gate of Takaosanguchi station at 10:00am with my Jack Russel terrier dog named "Jacksan." Our hike to the 599meter summit is 6-8km R/T with breaks for lunch, photos and snacks. There is an optional ropeway for descents if you feel tired. We begin with a 2hr trek through a lush forest following a mountain stream where monks still sit under waterfalls meditating. We will have a bento lunch at the summit (vegetarians okay!) and then descend through the 1,300 year old Yakuo-in Shrine and Yuki-ji Buddhist Temple before we reach the train station for an optional Hot Spring Bath. Teenagers are welcome. Jogging shoes or walking shoes are fine but flat soles can be slippery. Guests are recommended to take the 8:54am express train departing from Shinjuku Station on the Keio Line (390yen) Jacksan and I will be riding in the first car of the train near the conductor. The last stop is Takaosanguchi and you can read this on the side of the train. Hiking Mt. Takao is very famous in Japan so please ask the train station staff or anyone in Shinjuku station if you are not certain about which train to get on or whereto find the Keio line train.

Tokyo Urban Design Ride

¥7,000
per person
The concrete jungle of Tokyo awaits us as we mount our cruiser-style bicycles. After meandering the backstreets of the Tokyo's residential neighborhoods we weave our way between skyscrapers, overpasses, and parks. But, it's the areas between the massive buildings that we find improvised street art, delicate bonsai trees, and clever urban hacks. These details might be overlooked by the magnitude of the built environment but with a little help you'll be spotting all sorts of unique and surprising urban design solutions Tokyo might be hiding. All this curiosity will make us rather hungry so we might as well take a break and have a lovely meal at a favorite slow-food restaurant. After lunch, we'll take a slight detour around the park that could reveal a new coffee shop or more city treasures.
