    Tokyo Hachioujishi Takaomachi 2173
    A dojo where you can experience waterfall ablutions, a practice performed privately in ancient times by mountain ascetics to purify the body and soul prior to engaging in more serious training. This is one of the traditional training experiences offered to regular visitors by the Head Temple Yakuo-in; professional instruction is provided each month on the first Saturday, the 17th (temple festival day), and the 27th.
  • Hossawa Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Tokyo Nishitamagunhinoharamura Motoshuku
    A four tier, 60 meter tall water fall along the Seto Stream, a tributary of the Kitaakikawa River. This waterfall is the only one in Tokyo to have been selected as one of the 100 most beautiful in Japan. The final tier of the waterfall is a 23 meter drop, and a pathway extends right up to it. The area gets quite cold in winter, and during this time visitors can enjoy the rare and wonderful site of waterfall icicles. The falls are illuminated at night in mid-August, and the Hossawa Falls Winter Festival is held around the time it freezes over.

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
