Several years ago I hadn’t even heard of Tokyo`s rural Okutama region let alone the Mukashi-Michi, (an abandoned mountain pass). This changed for the better however, as I recently visited this impressive area.
Spanning almost 10 kilometers, the Mukashi-Michi runs parallel to the mighty Tama River. Set deep within a mountainous valley, this picturesque area contains several impressive man-made structures including the Shidakura and Dodokoro suspension bridges.
Located a couple of minutes walk away from each other, these bridges provide some breathtaking views out over Sogaku Ravine, creating a truly memorable experience

Long-term resident of Yokohama interested in getting out and seeing what this great country has to offer.
