Surrounded by lush green nature, the Akigawa River is a tributary of the Tama River. Flowing through the 20 km long basin, the water from the river is so pristine that you can even make out a fish’s shadow from the top of the bridge with your naked eye. Also, the best time to see the autumn foliage is from mid-November since the red fiery maple contrast beautifully against the yellow ginkgo trees.
