Bright red leaves and Tama River

Mitake Valley is a scenic spot in Tokyo prefecture.
You can go there in 1 hour and a half by train from Shinjuku, central Tokyo.

There is a 4 km long promenade along Tama River from Ikusabata station to Mitake station.
You can reach these station by JR Ome line from Tachikawa station (JR Chuo line, Nanbu line, Tama Monorail).
You should be careful that the train operated only twice per hour on the section between these stations and Ome station, which is an intermediate station.

In autumn, you can see beautiful autumn leaves in addition to the clear river.
Especially, the view from bridges across Tama River is so wonderful.
