Things to do
Mt Takao Soba Express

Get to the annual ceremony dedicated to soba (buckwheat) noodles at Mt Takao's Yakuoin Temple by riding the Mt Takao Soba Express, a special train that'll take you from the busy streets of Shinjuku to the tranquil mountainous outskirts of Tokyo. The ride costs exactly the same as a regular trip would, and passengers will get special-edition chopsticks and toothpicks as souvenir goodies. No reservations are needed, so hop on to pay respect to the Soba Gods and ensure another year of good harvest.
