Kinchakuda Manjushage Park

Reviewed By Joy_Sinha - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

Located in Hidaka, Saitama Prefecture. The park is accessible at a walking distance of 15 minutes from the Koma railway station on the Seibu-Chichibu Line.
This park is best visited in the month of September when the spider lilies are in full bloom. The bloom is usually during the last 2 weeks of the September.
There is an entry fee to the park and that is very minimal considering the wonderful sight of the large stretch of Spider lilies along the river side and in the forest areas within the park.
This is a good one day activity from Tokyo during the month of September. Do check the local listings and notifications before visiting this park for more details.

Tove Jansson Akebono Children's Forest Park

Reviewed By aska215 - Malaysia

This park is 20mins walk away from Motokaji station. You will see the moomin after passing by the stadium & walking thru the stadium open parking lot. A small little park with Moomin building arounds. Quite cute & fascinating. But super crowded with children running around. I woudn't recommend to come all the way from Tokyo just for this but do stop by if you are on the way back from Kinchakuda park.

Mitsui Outlet Park Iruma

Outlet mall with a wide variety of 210 shops, near the center of Tokyo; the shops include fashion, outdoor, and sports gear, as well as many cafes and restaurants!

Reviewed By Coconeal - Tokyo, Japan

Good access. Bus services are frequent from Iruma station. I can see tea tree Gardens which is famous for this area. It's not so far from Tokyo and there are lots of shops. Worth to visit.

Mt. Tenran

Reviewed By roxaskyoya - Singapore, Singapore

It's just a very short "mountain" however it's still a beautiful place to visit, the top of the mountain is an Observatory deck which can let you have a beautiful view of the city and other Mountains in the range, I was told you can see Mount Fuji as well but I didn't get to as the sun was too bright that I couldn't see much let alone Fuji. It's connected to Mount Tonosu so if you're feeling like you can go more just follow the trail to Tonosu. Observed that locals climb to the top to chat and take in the view and enjoy a cup of tea together and children playing around. It's around 15minutes to 20minutes away from the station.

Koma Shrine

Reviewed By StewieTokyo - Saitama, Japan

Fascinating place. The ancestral shrine of the local people who originally migrated from the northern part of Korea to Japan. The tomb of the king is in the grounds of a nearby Shingon Buddhist temple. The shrine / temple is a good combined visit and they are close. Both are obviously thriving and well maintained.

Noninji Temple

Reviewed By StewieTokyo - Saitama, Japan

I have seen a lot of temples in Japan (and other countries), so this one did not surprise in anyway. But, it has a nice atmosphere and feels like people care for it. The main priest was a sports journalist before being ordained and has maintained those links. There is a zazen meeting between 6am and 8am every Sunday morning, which anyone can attend. I am unsure that it is worth 300 yen to get in and look at the Gardens from the back of the main shrine hall but - maybe - I've seen too many nice Gardens too.
Apart from that - nice wide grounds, where you can eat a picnic lunch.

Tonosu Mountain

Reviewed By O986 - Adelaide, Australia

Hanno station is only about 45 minutes from Ikebukuro. When you arrive go to the information counter at the station and get a map. In about a 2.5 hour return trip you can hike up 2 Mountains (only small, 100m, and 250m), then hike along a beautiful river bank, before returning to the station. You can then enjoy a bowl of soba, ramen or udon noodles, before heading back to the city! The trails arent too demanding but the scenery is wonderful.

チャリ旅で通って、有名なところかと思ってきてみたが、こじんまりした小さなお寺・・・。わりと新しそうな感じ。絵馬は多いみたいだけど、それ以外はこれといった特徴は無かった。

有馬ダムの近くにある鳥居観音は、名栗村長や埼玉銀行頭取を歴任した平沼彌太郎が開祖。駐車場から鳥居をくぐり本堂まで行ったが、人がいなかったのと時間がなかったため今回はここで断念した。入山料は大人300円、車は一台500円とのこと。

Kanhasshu Observation Platform

Reviewed By 町田の熊 - Machida, Japan

奥武蔵の一角に関八州見晴台なるところがあります。標高は770m程ですが、安房、上野、下野、相模、武蔵、上総、下総、常陸の関東八州を見渡せたということでこの名前がついています。西吾野駅から登るのが正規の登山道の様ですが、今回は、黒滝三滝から傘杉峠、花立松ノ峠経由で来ました。晴れていれば富士山まで見渡せるとのことですが、この日は丹沢の大山がぼんやりと見えていました。山頂に平日にもかかわらず、賑わっていました。
