Takao Visitor Center is a public facility on the summit of Mt. Takao that provides information about the surrounding area to visitors and climbers alike.
There is an exhibition about the natural environment and history of Mt. Takao in the hall, and an interpreter will answer any questions you may have.

Renovated and opened in 2015, the exhibits in the museum have been renewed significantly.

Lots of exhibits explaining the nature of Mt. Takao!
The flying squirrel is the mascot of Mt. Takao. There is also an exhibition where you can experience the weight of flying squirrels.
There are also many hands-on exhibits!
A corner explaining the work of a “Tokyo Metropolitan Ranger” sworn to protect Takao and its trails. You can try carrying a Ranger’s pack, but you will be amazed by its weight.

In addition to the exhibition, a guided walk is held every day at 13:30.
Walk along with the guide on the mountain climbing course and they will explain various nuances of the environment. It’s a personalized tour experience so even mountain veterans can still enjoy the guided walk.
