takao 599 museum

mount takao is located in the city of hachioji which is part of tokyo metropolis. the mountain is the highest mountain of tokyo allowing visitors panaorama views on tokyo. at the base of this 599m-high mountain, the takao 599 museum  opened on august 11, 2015. due to the high number of visitors of mount takao, over the years, the village on the base has lost its original appearance. therefore the rather simple and traditional appearance is not spectacular but integrates very well in the neighbourhood.
