My hometown is Hachioji in westside of Tokyo. From Hachioji to Tokyo just only spend 1hour. No bad.
This town has beautiful nature and calm country side. When i ran in midnight, i met Momonga, Raccoon,and Itatsi. They are so cute!
I recommend you 3 places to visit in Hachioji.
First, Mt.Takao is famous in all over the world. In a year more than 3 million people come to this mountain. Mt Takao is easy to climb because this mt is not too high. When i was elementary school student, I climbed this mountain. On top of the mountain i drunk water, that taste was so good and that view was so beautiful, I could see rural area of Tokyo. Mt Takao shows different scene in each season （spring,summer,fall,winter）.If you want feel relax and drink delicious water, i recommend you to visit to Mt Takao!
Second, After you climbed Mt takao. You want to go to bath “onsen”. I recommend You to visit
“GOKURAKUYU” in TakaoSanguchi station. This spot is kind of amusementpark. There are bath room, massage room. Food space etc,,,. When i visited in this spot. Many tourist come to this spot. I thought “this is really Japan?”. Global…
Finally Hachioji has Maiko who show dance and sing song girls in a private party.
“Maiko” in Kyoto is famous in Japan. I respect these girls because almost same age girl make an effort to take over to traditional for next generation.
