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. Weeping Cherry Trees at Kongou Temple

When Taira no Masakado (903-940: a powerful family active in the Kanto region during the Heian period) visited this temple, the plum tree's body remained green and never ripened, hence the name "Ome of Masakado's oath", and the current name of Ome City.
The temple's precincts are home to significant cultural assets and natural monuments of the national and metropolitan governments, and a large weeping cherry tree stands symbolically.


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 Gallery Restaurant "Mayugura"

Remodeled old-style warehouse built about 100 years ago, this restaurant serve healthy and tasty dish of seasonal seasonal ingredients. There is an art gallery upstairs.

6. 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.
