Things to do
Where is this new destination?
Nishitama region is the western part of Tokyo and that means it is a neighborhood of one of the biggest metropolis in the world. But there are untouched mountains, beautiful rivers and good old Japanese culture without crowds, skyscrapers and bustle of a city.
In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.
