One day excursion to the oasis in Tokyo

  • Nature Walks

Todoroki keikoku, or stream is the only stream within the twenty three wards in Tokyo. Todoroki is a part of the Musashi plateau and has been eroded by the Yazawa River, which provides you with a unique geology, seasonal vegetation and birds. The stream stretches only 1 kilometer. Apart from the nature itself, the area has historical attractions such as ruins of kofun, or tumulus mounds, and tumulus caves at which you can see the history of ancient times.

Also, at one end of the stream, there is a temple and especially in spring, about 150 cherry trees attracts lots of visitors. You can visit a small Japanese garden and traditional Japanese building which was built in the 1960s as well.

After walking about Todoroki, you can move one station away to Kaminoge to visit a private museum; Goto museum. Founded by Mr. Keita Goto who was a chairman of the Tokyu group, his collections is here. The collection includes paintings, writings and crafts, which were collected mainly from Japan, some of which are national treasures.

Tips: The hiking course is not hard, but there are some unstable steps, so you should be a good walker. When raining, the river will soon be swollen, so you might need to cancel the walkabout.
