On the 14th of June I took a hiking trip out of Tokyo.
I caught 3 trains, a bus and a cable care to get to near to the summit of Mitake-san! All of this was done on my Suica card (like an Oyster card for London) and without any issues!
From there I walked to the summit of Mitake-san at 929m and along a ridge going over the peaks of Odake-san (1267m) and Nokogiri-yama (1109m) and dropping down to Oku-tama in the valley and the train back to Tokyo. The walking was nice, good paths and signs for directions! Lots of forest, very different to hill walking in the UK where there are extensive views and open country.
There were many butterflies around, some quite large ones. I only managed a photograph of one.
Here are a few pictures:
