Throughout November a variety of events will be held at the base of Mt. Takao at venues including Takao Forest Center, Kiyotaki Station (the cable car stop) and teashop Ju-itchome Chaya on the mountainside. There will be masu-zake (wooden box cups for sake) on sale, performances by the theatre group, Tokyo Kokeshi, a taiko drumming performance by the Hachijoji Fire brigade band, trained monkeys, and a concert of children’s songs by Tomoko Amemiya. There will be giveaways of an eco bag to the first 300 people to the plaza in front of Kiyotaki Station every Saturday from 10am. It is expected that there will be heavy traffic at the base of Mt. Takao during the festival—public transport is recommended.
