    Established to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Emperor Showa's reign, this is a national park built on the grounds of the former Tachikawa Airport with an area of 180 hectares (approximately 40 times the size of Tokyo Dome). Visitors to the spacious park can view various flowers and plants throughout the year, and in spring guests can enjoy more than 1,500 cherry trees in bloom. Rainbow Pool, available only in summer, is a wide water space some 1.4 times the size of Tokyo Dome. In winter, there is also a Christmas illumination. The Green Cultural Zone is not only used as an event space but also for a fireworks festival in summer.

    This wa a total surprise and well worth the trip. Catch the train to Nishi-Tachiwawa and take a lovely stroll through the illuminations.

    A Shingon Daigo Buddhist temple located in Shiobune, Ome City, Tokyo. The temple is said to have been founded by the mythical 800 year old nun Yao Bikuni during the Taika era (645-650). The temple's principal object of worship is an 11 faced, 1,000 armed, 1,000 eyed figure of Avalokitesvara.

    Tokyo Oumeshi Mitakesan 176
    This shrine located on the top of Mt. Mitake (also known as Musashi Mitakesan) in Ome City flourished as a sacred place for mountain worship. It is reported to have been established in 91 BC. In addition to the former honden (main shrine), which was designated a Tangible Cultural Property by the Tokyo metropolitan government, the current honden in shinmei-zukuri style (a style of shrine architecture based on that of Ise Jingu), and the haiden (hall of worship) in gongen-zukuri style (a style of Shinto architecture in which the main hall and worship hall share one roof), visitors can see the “Akaito Odoshi Oyoroi (odoshi armor with red strings),” which is a National Treasure, in the Homotsuden (treasure house). A grand kagura performance that is open to the public is held every year on the third Sunday in June and on the Senior Citizen’s Day in September. Since Musashi-Mitake Jinja enshrines a white wolf in the form of an “oinusama” (sacred dog), there have been increasing numbers of worshippers who come to pray for their beloved dogs’ health, and the shrine accepts requests for prayers on behalf of pet dogs.

    Took a day trip with kids ages 9 and 7 to enjoy the colored leaves and hiking. I would strongly advise to arrive before 9 am if you are planning to park near Takimoto Station where you can take the...

    A day trip hot spring bath facility opened in 1996 in Hinode Town, Nishitama County, Tokyo. “Tsurutsuru” means ‘smooth’ in Japanese, and just as its name implies, the highly alkaline waters of the facility’s baths, drawn from 1,500 meters below the ground, will make your skin noticeably smoother. In the bathhouse’s spacious, 108 tatami mat-sized “panorama” restaurant, sunlight filters in between the trees outdoors through large windows; here you can enjoy a set which comes with Akigawa beef served on a Japanese hackberry leaf or Masakado nabe hotpot with Ome pork.

    A Japanese garden next to Okutama's Ozawa Shuzo brewery that's been making sake since 1702. On the banks of the Tama River, there's a gift shop selling sake from Sawanoi, wasabi pickles, and popular sake manju buns. They're handmade on-site and are small enough to make great gifts. There's also a food court where you can buy light fare like udon, soba, and stewed oden. Looking down on the Tama River, many visitors stop by for a break while hiking the nature of the Mitake Valley.

    Located close to the JR Sawai station on the JR Ome-Okutama route. It is situated adjacent to the Ozawa Sake Brewery. The restaurant has a wonderful set up along the river with lush green...

The waters of the bathhouse' alkaline spring are said to ease muscle soreness and aid in the recovery from fatigue; slippery to the touch, they are also believed to beautify the skin. Facilities include a hinoki cypress tub constantly replenished ""kakenagashi"" style from the source spring, an elegant rock bath, wooden trellis bath, and lie down bath, and customers can enjoy a relaxing soak which will warm them to the very core. There's also an aroma beauty sauna, aesthetic bath, and body care and eyelash extension center."

    Ive only been to a handful of onsens in Japan but this was my absolute favourite. Having the luxury of being on a rooftop onsen was everything fantastic.

    Blue Seal is an ice cream parlor located along National Route 16 in Fussa, Fussa City. It is the first shop inthe popular Okinawan chain to be established in the Kanto region. In addition to 25 flavors of ice cream, both standard flavors and seasonal flavors, it also sells soft serve, parfaits, sundaes, and other treats. It attracts a lot of customers from the nearby Yokota Air Force Base, and it accepts U.S. dollars as payment.

    Nothing more to say other than that this place has some great sundaes! I would probably stay away from the coffee though. Not exactly a consumable item.

    An art museum located in Mitake, Ome City, Tokyo, where Gyokudo Kawai, the great master of Japanese painting in modern times, lived. Exhibitions change seven times throughout the year depending on the season ensuring visitors will always see something new every time they visit. The building is wheelchair friendly, and not only are the exhibits well worth seeing but the gallery room itself, reconstructed to how it would have looked at the time is also a must-see. As well as being able to enjoy some soymilk yuba (dried bean curd skin) udon in the restaurant, Imoutoya, there are also plenty of local souvenirs to be had such as local sake and confectionery.

    Loved this small museum. I wasnt familiar with the artist Gyokudo beforehand but was impressed with his talent. Wish I couldve taken a photo of some of his landscapes and flowers. Just stunning...

Here you can get acquainted with an historic Japanese building and the country’s beautiful culture while enjoying a delicious meal. The differently decorated first and second dining areas are spectacular, but so are the new private dining rooms, halls, and tea room surrounded by bamboo and moss.

    I come here about 3-4 times every year because I absolutely love this restaurant. Not only the food, but the building itself is spectacular, using a very old used-to-be rice granary. Itll transport...

    Earth Garden is a restaurant which provides a menu full of hearty produce using the highest quality roppaku kurobuta (a kind of pork from black pigs), fresh vegetables, and a kind of seasoning rare less than one percent found at all in Japan. The healthy, delicious and large quantity of food all at reasonable prices brings customers back time and time again. Customers can also purchase their prized seasoning and sanshoku (three-colored variety) rice as souvenirs.

    We had hiking here in Okutama and after that we enjoyed the lunch in this restaurant. Beautiful view, great service and delicious cuisine. I’ll be back soon!

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.
