Where is this dry landscape garden?

by Hiroyuki

Tokyo is the capital of Japan with the population of approximately 13 million. However, Tokyo contains a large mountainous area. The highest mountain, Mt. Kumotori is 2017 meters high. It is the source of water of Tama River. Tama River has formed gorge and valley along the upper stream. There is a Japanase painter's memorial art museum surrounded by Tama River valley's rich nature. In the museum, there is a wonderful dry landscape garden which is selected among top 20 lists of Japanese-style gardensWhere is this dry landscape garden? by an American magazine. Around here, a light hiking along the river is enjoyable. Now, I recommend you experience a lot of nature in Tokyo. Why don't you join my tour?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
