Mount Takao BBQ

13 July 2021 ~

As Mountain Day falls this weekend, why not travel to Mount Takao to get a taste of nature. Climb up all the way or use the ropeway to the higher level.

While normally Beer Mount on Mount Takao is an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink BBQ restaurant, this year due to the State of Emergency there is a change in the menu. But you can still enjoy a “craft BBQ”, “Tengu hotdogs” and soft drinks.
