As my blog's article of Mount Takao, I enjoyed spring's fresh green in Mount Takao(高尾山, Takao-san).

Here I would like to introduce the easiest and most reasonable way to go to Mount Takao, not only for me, but also for tourists from foreign countries.

With Mt. Takao Discount Ticket(高尾山きっぷ, Takao-san Kippu) which a railway company Keio(京王) offers, you can go to Mount Takao easily.

The discount ticket includes a round-trip ticket from Shinjuku(新宿) to Takaosanguchi(高尾山口) Station and cable car.

When you normally try to go from Shinjuku to Takaosanguchi(with Transportation IC Card like Suica, PASMO and etc.) and ride the cable car, that costs you 1,742 Yen.

However, you can get the discount ticket with 1,380 Yen, 362 Yen discount.
