Located at the eastern edge of the rolling Sayama Hills, Hachikokuyama Park stretches along the border between Tokyo and Saitama. The name Hachikokuyama, which means “eight province mountain,” originates in the fact that the mountains of eight old provinces (Kamitsuke, Shimotsuke, Hitachi, Awa, Sagami, Suruga, Shinano, and Kai) are visible from the peak of the mountain. This park is a location with a great deal of ancient history and tradition.

The ridge road, which spans 1.9 kilometers across prefectural borders from east to west, is easy to walk with moderate ups and downs. Visitors can enjoy the flowers of the Clethraceae family and yamazakura cherry as they walk. South from the ridge road are numerous paths that lead to bright, open areas in the quiet forest that are perfect for a picnic. The area around the Futatsu Pond in the south part of the park also serves as a bird watching spot.
