This is a comic I drew about the one (and only) time I went hiking in Japan a couple of years ago. Mt. Takao shouldn’t really even be considered a hike nowadays with long lines of tourists basically waiting their turn to shuffle up the hiking path, but the view at the top is lovely (you can see Mt. Fuji on clear days) and there are really good soba shops there too. Hopefully I get to try hiking again sometime soon!
