Mitake Shrine 御嶽神社
Mitake 御嶽 in Tokyo 東京 is well known for mountainous forest, valley and popular shrine.
Tourists who come from foreign countries might imagine Tokyo as a metropolitan city containing many buildings and a crowd of people without nature.
However, Tokyo still has a rich natural environment.

It is about 90 – 120 minutes by train from downtown Tokyo stations such as Shinjuku (新宿) station.
