WEST TOKYO AREA

Tranquility, Nature and Local Food Culture

In west Tokyo, beyond the city’s urban limits, parklands and rolling hills starkly contrast the high-rise downtown façade. This is exemplified by natural landmarks like Mt. Takao and Mt. Mitake thrusting upwards from the verdant landscape along with seasonal flower parks and botanical gardens. While it has always been a popular destination for locals, in recent years, Western Tokyo has also become a regular port of call for domestic and international tourists who want to experience Japanese nature without straying too far from the capital. In 2021, it was here in this part of Tokyo, where the world’s best equestrians and their horses gathered to make history at the Tokyo 2020 Games.

Nature, culture and sport out of the city center

Most travelers to Tokyo are familiar with the bustling heart of Tokyo and its 23 wards, but the beauty of this vast city certainly does not end there. Western Tokyo, while still being a part of the greater Tokyo metropolis, offers visitors the chance to experience a variety of natural attractions, including extensive parks, mountains, and gorges. Nishitokyo is home to numerous sport and leisure facilities, the most famous being the TOKYO STADIUM (AJINOMOTO STADIUM), which played an essential role in the Tokyo 2020 Games. The facilities showcased here can all be reached within an hour from central Tokyo.
