An environment unique to Tokyo, Todoroki Valley is a simple walking trail adjacent to the Yazawa River and surrounded by a very dense forest that totally shields it from Kan-Pachi Dori, one of Tokyo’s busiest roads. While the Todoroki Valley’s 1.2 km walking trail is pure bliss, it’s only at the end of the voyage that you can discover yet another hidden wonder: the Todoroki Fudo Temple. Here you can enjoy some delicious mochi (Japanese rice sweets) and ramune (Lemonade), and you have the option to let the gods hear your prayers and wash away your sins.
