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.
