Recently I hiked up Mt. Takao in Japan. It was a great day.
On a clear day, the city can be seen from the top of the mountain. Landmarks such as Tokyo’s Sky Tree really stand out at night. The top of Mt. Fuji is also visible at times, though the view is much clearer during the winter season.
The hiking/outdoors culture is similar to that of other countries, I guess. Everyone on the path was friendly and offered a jovial こんにちは as we passed by.
It’s an easy climb, so I definitely recommend going to Mt. Takao during your trip to Tokyo. There is a beer garden at the top with an amazing view of the city and tons of great food. For Japanese culture enthusiasts, there is also a number of beautiful shrines and temples. Check it out!
