In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
One of the most beloved places in western Tokyo’s Okutama region, Hatonosu Gorge is a vibrantly green gorge throughout the warmer months of the year, and even more striking when the leaves change in autumn. The Tama River flows through the gorge’s rugged crags, and the refreshing sound of rushing water echoes throughout the area. A suspension bridge hangs across the ravine, making it easy to take in the gorgeous views.
Hatonosu Valley is part of a hiking trail that stretches across the Okutama region. It’s a great day trip out of the city, and you can also pursue outdoor activities such as fishing and camping around Kori Station not far away. The valley is just a 10-minute walk from Hatonosu Station on the Ome Line.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
