What you'll do

Meeting at Okutama Station we will cycle to a lake along the old road. I will introduce you to the history of the area and its nature and culture, which is very different from Tokyo. Along the way, we will come across old shrines, mountain villages, and wildlife. At the lake, we will visit a small museum exhibiting historic artifacts. Then we'll return to town to soak our feet at local onsen - hot spring. After, we will shop for souvenirs.
