Okutama – Hikawa and Tamagawa Meeting

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on October 3, 2015

Not far from Okutama Station in Tokyo’s westernmost Nishitama-Gun (Nishitama County), the furtherest west you can go in Tokyo by train, is a lovely little spot in the river where the mighty Tamagawa (well, not up here, but later on the river will become huge) is joined by the tiny Hikawa. I love these placid little rivers where you can actually go down and enjoy the waters and the polished river rocks. A hanging bridge allows you to cross easily from the tiny town on the north bank. There is not much to see or do here but if you are overdosing on concrete and the urban jungle of Tokyo, welcome out to the proper forests of Okutama!

    Hey Tokyobling, I’ve been following your blog for a while and the photos you take are awesome, as an amateur photographer I was wondering what equipment you use, like lens and such?
