A little rural reprieve not far from the capital, the city of Chichibu draws visitors with its vibrant landscape and pleasant, low-key urban attractions. Awash with color throughout the year, from the turning of autumn leaves to the springtime blossoms in pinks and yellows, Chichibu tourism offers a rejuvenating break from the nonstop bustle of Japan's larger metropolises. Framed by mountains and dramatic cliff faces, Chichibu has many artfully arranged fruit plantations, and allows guests to pick their own strawberries, plums, and grapes. Make your own Chichibu vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Japan trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Chichibu

Known as something of a resort town, Chichibu offers a large set of accommodations for a city of its size. In keeping with the town's traditional rural sensibility, the majority of the accommodations are ryokans with pleasant grounds, immaculate interiors, and, if you're lucky, a traditional onsen on site. Many make it just a day trip to Chichibu, however, traveling from Tokyo in under two hours by car or train.
