  • Oku-Tama station from about 15 minutes by bus from Okutama Lake. The scenery here is beautiful even by bus to bridge on the peak tanicmokiri and wheat mountains 浮ki橋 is especially beautiful. 浮ki橋 can be in the bridge of the drum. View from the bridge is really nice. It is recommended to confirm to catch the bus so I got off the bus. Tsurunoyu hot springs is located on the heights of the peak tanicmokiri bridge. Nice view from the bathtub, can be reserved for private use.

  • Narrow Oku-Tama station bus stop (? ), Very close I felt. Crowded buses. I climb walk down station → bus and Lake. Always clean during the cherry blossom and autumn came. Next time I want cherry blossom season.

  • Earlier, from 15 years ago has come more than 50 times in the same are preserved. To explore the dam walking fine but want to come back, and go until the end of the embankment and the car is going to take place nearly 30 minutes. Okutama is around the mountain (the highest mountain of the degree of difficulty is also available) suitable for climbing, so are popular with hikers. Okutama Lake is quite large and has a very tangled so exploring by bus and taken the time considerably so (bus time) will explore the car is useful. So they were very popular in the past 15 years ago to bass fish, go to the middle of the night waiting for the morning fishing, I did also, but very little light, not in the evening darkness including drives at night, be careful!
