Musashi Mitake Shrine

Reviewed By jinxtraveler - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

After reached Mitakesan Cable Car Station, one still need to walk for another 30min to reach Musashi-Mitake Shrine and on the way, one will pass a small village and prepare for some ascend as well. It was a beautiful shrine but normally people won't do the hike just to visit it, unless you are here for the valley hiking.
But we were traveling with my mom that has difficulties to do such a hectic hike for her, so we were just strolling along the pathway. However, out of our expectation, we were offered by a local to drive us up to the shrine by his mini-van and waited for us to send us back to the cable car station! Such a great deed and hospitality from the local Japanese that we'll never forget!

Shiofune Kannon Temple

Reviewed By jinxtraveler - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

One of the must visit place when you visit Ome, Tokyo especially during spring where the azalea (つつじ) blooming season. Best time to visit is around late Apr to Early May. It may look like a normal Japanese temple front the front, but one shall not miss the backyard garden. The backyard garden was beautifully landscaped with a giant Kannon Statue overlooking the garden from the hill top, while the garden was filled up with colorful azalea bushes trimmed into sphere shape! It's definitely worth the visit for those flower lovers like me.

Ozawa Sake Brewery

Reviewed By Joy_Sinha - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

The Ozawa Sake brewery is located at Sawai, Ome. It is very close to the JR Ome Sawai station on the JR Ome route to Okutama. The Brewery is one of the oldest in the area and offers visitors with a free of charge trip to the brewery and some fine Sake tasting. The visit to the interiors of the brewery is very popular and needs an advance booking if vising in groups.
Though the person in charge of the trip explains in Japanese, there are ample information in English and that is wonderful indeed. The Sake tasting is the end is a welcome addition. One of the best Sake, I have tasted in Japan (especially outside Tokyo) The brewery has an adjoining garden area with restaurants where one can enjoy Japanese cuisines with Sake.

Kushi Kanzashi Museum

Reviewed By Prepcook - Fussa, Japan

A museum specific to Japanese hair styles and ornaments through history situated on the banks of a white water river, this is a must visit.
The museum showcases various beautiful and ornately designed combs, hairpins and other hair decorations as well as small clutch bags. There are two floors of exhibits as well as a video of a live Edo type styling process which is a multi step wonder. There are breathtaking panoramic views of the river that can be enjoyed while sipping a coffee from the vending machine on the lower floor. Stepping outside you are in a calming natural setting full of greenery and the rush of the river passing by.
There is a foot bridge to cross to get closer to the water and it is a popular area for nature walks,photography and kayaking.
Stop at the gift shop on the way out and choose a modern day hair ornament as a souvenir or gift to complete the trip. Exhibits rotate so I look forward to my next visit.
