  • September holidays I visited, but unfortunately putting an umbrella on a rainy day while we went sightseeing. I see is beautiful if it is fine, but it rained, so was a little disappointing. Cloud was seen from the bridge on a rainy day, so it is also the atmosphere is very good. By bus from Okutama station for easy access in one.

  • It is a beautiful Lake was dammed in jars in Tokyo the ogouchi dam. Walking on the dam and look OK, running back Tama tour road, well enjoy the Red Bridge, yellow bridge and the white bridge is. In the Museum of crafts behind Tama water near the dam and the Green, is good to learn the history and overview of the ogouchi dam.
