Parks and Gardens

The Shimogawara Green Pathway is a green-lined path along the abandoned train lines of the old Tokyo Gravel Railway, whose tracks were first laid in 1910.

The railway was first built to gather and transport gravel, but was eventually closed in 1976.

Today, it's a path open only to pedestrians and bikers, used as a common road by local residents. This pathway appeared in the popular comic, "Chihayafuru" which is set in Fuchu City.
