- This festival enables city dwellers to enjoy the fiery red leaves of autumn on top of Mt. Takao, which is just 50 minutes from Shinjuku by limited express train on the Keio Line. While enjoying the view, you can go shopping—; there are stalls selling native sake (Japanese liquor), forest crafts, traditional food delicacies and souvenirs—. You can also watch the taiko (Japanese style drum beating) contest in Tenbo Square. Admission is free.
