Experience nature! Tamagawa river
The charm of river activities

The Tamagawa river is a first-class river crossing the Tokyo metropolis, and Yamanashi and Kanagawa Prefectures. It is hard to believe that such clear waters flowing down through mountains from their source are to be found in Tokyo. The surrounding nature shows off its beauty throughout the four seasons. The varied currents and natural valleys where water flows from springs are host to a number of businesses offering a variety of river activities.

The Tamagawa river has become a mecca for canoers and kayakers from all over the country. Beginners can also enjoy rafting or, SUP has become popular in recent years. One can also experience the sensation of the flow of the mountain streams by river boat, or for oneself by going on a shorter canyoning course – a newly offered service that has been on the increase. This is a popular tourist spot visited by many men and women of all ages.

One can enjoy the mountain streams of the "Mitake-Keikoku" valley - named as one of a hundred famous water spots - or take in lake ""Shiromaru-ko"", surrounded by heavily forested mountains and bathed in silence. A visit to the residents of Japan's Satoyama will put you back in touch with the continuing pulse of tradition.

Another of Tokyo's and Tama's charms, can be found here.
