SATOYAMA @TOKYO, which is called Nishitama region, is a neighborhood located to the west of the metropolitan area in Tokyo. There are no crowds, no skyscrapers and no bustle of a city, but there are mountains, rivers, good old Japanese culture and sound of nature. In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.
The one of the most remarkable aspects of this region is the distance from the central Tokyo. You will enjoy cultural experiences, visiting historic sites and even outdoor activities like hiking, cycling and river rafting as a day trip from downtown hotels in Tokyo.
All our tours include transport by chartered vehicle or public transportation and English speaking tour guide. Check out the details of this tour.

Wooden traditional tools which are formerly used to make sake are displayed at this place. You will learn the traditional style of making sake and enjoy sampling a sip of CHIYOTSURU（千代鶴), the brand name of Nakamura（中村）sake brewery. Bottles of sake can be purchased on the spot as well.
Dinner & Stay at Ryokan (traditional Japanese-style hotel)
Spending a luxurious time in Tokyo doesn’t mean only staying in high-end hotels of metropolitan Tokyo. This Ryokan, which is called Kabutoya, located at an altitude of 750 meters in a mountain of Tokyo. The traditional Japanese architectural structure, including the exterior with a thatched roof and the interior with Irori fireplace, would totally rest your mind.
Irori fireplace is a traditional open fireplace in Japan to make charcoal fire cooking while keeping the room warm. But it’s really rare nowadays and hard to find a ryokan with that. In addition to that, a scenic view and a bathtub filled with hot spring will relax you enough.
