Tama River (River)

Tokyo by Yosuke Yajima

Tama River is located in the outskirts of west Tokyo. A large waterfall located upstream, and the cold water is surprisingly clear. There, you will find a wonderful landscape no identical to any of those you see today. At the same time, you will forget the fact that you are in Tokyo.

Mt.Nikko Shirane (Place)

Tokyo by Yosuke Yajima

This mountain is known as one of the top one hundred famous mountains in Japan. And is one of the highest mountains in the Tokyo area. I went mountaineering at the end of last autumn, and felt cold at the summit. The views changed as winds pushed away thick clouds, and I felt that winter was just around the corner. Scenery is breathtaking. It is recommended as a mountain comparatively easy to climb.

Izu Oshima (Island)

Tokyo by Yosuke Yajima

Izu-Oshima is a small island which takes about two and a half hours by speedboat from the center of Tokyo. It is 120km away, but still is "Tokyo". The island welcomes you with a distinctive landscape, having Mt.Mihara, a sacred volacano at the center. Travelers will fully realize how small they are facing the majestic landscape of Izu-Oshima.

Fuji Wind Cave (Attraction)

Tokyo by Yosuke Yajima

This cave at the foot of Mt. Fuji is located in the spread of volcanic rocks, surrounded by sea of trees where compass is no use. The temperatures drop suddenly, and you will not be able to stay inside the cave for long. However, the explorers will go further inside seeking for the bats flying around. It is highly recommended to visitors of the sacred Mt. Fuji .
