GGB’s lovely but chilly December Hike!!

GGB’s Mr BC sets off for a nice lil’ hike near Tokyo. Of course to Takao lal笑 but starting at Mount Jinba…slightly further away from the standard Takao

Started off at the base of Mount Jinba at 9.15 am. About 1 hour to the summit. From Jinba’s summit, we walked to Takao, traversing Mount Kagenobuyama on the way. It was a nice, slow chuhike (chuhai + hike), and we reached Takao as the sun was setting. Perfect Mount Fuji views. Was legit.

Overall, not a bad hike and not too easy. The paths are super well laid out, so it’s easy to navigate, and the end result is about 23k hiked, and 2,300 calories less. Defo worth it ;)
