Enjoy the Four Seasons along the Tobu Railway The Best Scenic Views at any Time of Year

In this edition, we present recommended destinations and activities ideal for enjoying seasonal scenic highlights along the Tobu Railway. As well as Tokyo, our recommendations cover the castle town of Kawagoe, around 30 minutes from Tokyo by train, and the natural beauty of World Heritage listed Nikko, two hours from the capital. Each of the four seasons has its own unique appeal for you to discover.


Capture your memories of TOKYO SKYTREE


TOKYO SKYTREE is a must-see on any Tokyo trip. On a clear day the observation platform offers views over the whole Kanto region including the Tokyo metropolitan area. In spring the surrounding area is awash with cherry blossoms. From Sumida Park oraround the Tobu Bridge you can shoot the blossoms and the tower together. Why not take a great photo to capture your memories and hold on to a keepsake from your trip?

Nikko, famous as a World Heritage site, is full of natural beauty. Canyoning is particularly recommended in summer. Visitors can enjoy the incredible natural scenery including numerous waterfalls, also referred to as Nikko Shiju-hachi Taki (48 waterfalls of Nikko). The verdant outdoors of Nikko is a truly refreshing place to get some exercise.

Kawagoe -Fall leaves at Nakain

Fall colors are the highlight of this season. Nakain is one of the best spots in Kawagoe to enjoy the spectacle. In fall, the aroma of fragrant olive fills the air and the ginkgo tree behind the main hall dazzles in yellow. The incredible colors are on view from mid-November. We recommend enjoying the scene while trying the local sweet potato confectionary.

Snow-trekking in the Unryu Valley

In winter, parts of Nikko have a magical blanket of snow. The Unryu Valley includes not only a waterfall which freezes for a short period during the coldest time of the year but also huge ice pillars. The beauty and size of the ice-formations take your breath away.Valley tours are available every winter, so why not take on this challenge?
