  • Yozawa River Fireflies
    Travel / Tourism
    Tokyo Akiruno-shi Yozawa Kawa Surrounding area
    The area around the Yozawa River flowing at the foot of Mt. Odake is known for its fireflies. Fireflies can be seen all along the Yozawa River, but of particular note is the area where the river flows alongside the grounds of the Tokuunin in the Ochiai area; a small stone-paved path follows the river, and many tourists gather here to watch the fireflies. During the firefly season, several areas, including the Tokuunin Temple and the schoolyard of the Komiya Furusato Nature Experience School, are made available for use for parking. The best firefly viewing occurs on sultry nights with high humidity. Also great is the fact the area is a convenient 60-minute drive from central Tokyo.

    Tokyo Ome-shi Mitakesan 17 Mitakesan Sta.
    An area located near Mitakesan Station on the Mitake Tozan Railway cable car. The park is connected to Musashi Mitake Shrine's shrine road and visitors can also travel to an observatory and scenic lookout restaurant by jumping on the nearby cable car. The entire sloping area is a habitat for a flowering plant called the false anemone, which can be seen in full bloom in late July. The Mt. Mitake False Anemone Festival is also held here from mid-July through mid-September, and during this time the park bustles with large numbers of tourists.
  • Tsubaki Tunnel

    Tokyo Oshimamachi Senzu
    A beautiful street in the Sentsu district of northeastern Izu Oshima. Camellia trees extend for about 100 meters along both sides, creating a natural tunnel. Nice and cool even in the middle of summer, it's a part of the Oshima Loop Road, Tokyo Metropolitan Road Route 208. The thick-trunked trees with their reaching branches are a sight to see. Photographers visit in droves from January to March when they come into bloom.

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.
