[Tama River Seasonal Course]
1-Day Tamagawa Excursion

Best season: Spring
(Except Mondays and Fridays)

*This journey is operated in a private vehicle.
This area, which is called Nishitama, is a neighborhood located to the west of the metropolitan area in Tokyo. There are mountains, rivers, good old Japanese culture and sound of nature instead of crowds, skyscrapers and bustle of a city. It's a part of a national park.
In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.

1. JR Ome Station

2. Weeping Cherry Trees at Baigan Temple

It is an ancient temple with a history of 1,000 years. The weeping cherry tree on its grounds is famous as a representative 'picture' of the Nishi-Tama area and is a natural monument of Ome City. The view of the city from behind the weeping cherry tree is truly a view through the cherry curtains. A statue of Kobo-Daishi and his footprints are enshrined in the temple's precincts, and stepping on the footprints will bring merit equivalent to the 88 pilgrimage sites on Shikoku.


3. Stroll around JR Ome station

This popular tourist destination is famous as the birthplace of Japan's Showa-era (1926 - 1989) retro. In the Ome shopping arcade, which is like a time slip back to the Showa period, there is the Showa Retro Products Museum*, where we can experience the lifestyle and culture of the Showa period, which lasted for 64 years, including confectionery, beverages, miscellaneous goods, stationery and medicines that were sold in the Showa period, including valuable packages not preserved even by manufacturers. We can see the culture of daily life in the Showa era. Furthermore, visitors can also see the works of the last signboard painter, Mr Kubo Itakan.

*Showa retro museum visit included only on Sat and Sundays due to the business day.


4. Kamanofuchi Park 

This park, which uses a sizeable meandering section of the Tama River, is famous for its 200-metre-long row of cherry blossom trees. The park also contains the Ayumi Bridge, with its graceful egret-like appearance, the Ome City Folk Museum, which tells the history of Ome, and the Miyazaki Family Residence, a farmer's house with a distinctive thatched roof, believed to have been built in the early 19th century.


5. Lunch at "Sawanoi Mamagotoya"

Located along the Tama river. They serve a Japanese traditional multi-course meal using freshly made tofu and Yuba(tofu skin) made from fresh water and selected domestic soybeans. The water is the same water used to brew Sawanoi sake.

*We will visit other restaurants when this restaurant is not available.

6. Ozawa Sake Brewery / Sawanoi Garden

Founded in 1702, Ozawa Sake Brewery is the oldest sake maker around this area, standing amongst the scenic beauty of the Tama River, Tokyo. Tour the brewery where over 300 years of sake-making traditions are passed down through generations.


7. Stroll along the Mitake Valley

The valley has been selected as one of the 100 best waters in Japan by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. It is considered one of the most beautiful clear water beauties in the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park. The 4 km promenade on both banks of the Tama River delights the eye of the beholder with its seasonal abundance of nature, including cherry blossoms in spring, fresh greenery in early summer, and autumn leaves in autumn. The promenade near the river also allows visitors to experience the river's powerful flow. Various tourist facilities such as the Gyokudo Art Museum, Ozawa Sake Brewery, Kanzashi Museum, and Kansanji Temple are connected to the promenade.


8. Gyokudo Art Museum

Mr Gyokudo KAWAI is a great master of Japanese painting, contributed to the advancement of Japanese art and culture through the mid 18s to the early 19th century.
