ACCESS


FAMOUS LOCATION

1. Jindaiji Temple 深大寺

Jindaiji is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Tokyo. And from the 8th century, it has housed the oldest national treasure of a statue of Buddha in Eastern Japan.

From ancient times, Jindaiji has combined a sanctuary of peace and prayer with a gathering place for multitudes seeking faith & assurance in life.

When you visit this temple, take a deep breath, in calm moments, you can separate yourself from your busy life. In here, time goes by slowly; surrounded by the beauties of nature.


2. Tamagawa River 多摩川

Not only is the Tamagawa river an idyllic visiting spot in modern day Japan, it also has a rich history in terms of its biodiversity. After the Second World War, urban areas surrounding the river were heavily polluted and left essentially untouched from the 1950s onwards. The river was left lifeless, worn down by a raging war, becoming an unfortunate afterthought in the rubble of an injured Japan.


3. Chofu City Firework Festival

The Chofu City Fireworks Festival held every July drags as many as 300,000 visitors to witness the event along the banks of the Tamagawa River. About 9,000 fireworks light up the autumn night sky, including fireworks that cross over the river, fireworks set to music, and a huge grand finale.
