Hike from Ikusabata to Mitake through Mount Takamizu & Mount Iwatakeishi

Earlier this week, I went on a hike in Ome City, in the western part of Toyko. Heading north of Ikusabata Station, I took a trail through the forest, passing through the summits of Mount Takamizu (高水山, 759m), Mount Iwatakeishi (岩茸石山, 793m) and Mount Sogaku (惣岳山, 756m) before going down to Mitake, where I spent some time strolling on the banks of Tama River.
