Ikiki-no-Michi

A road that still carries the remnants of bygone trade routes.

Sightseeing

Ikiki-no-Michi is a path on a terraced cliff that was carved into the banks of Tama River. It's often called "Hake" for short. In the past, lumberwood cut from forests at the river's headwaters were sent down the river to Tokyo Bay, a route that raftsmen would nickname "Ikiki-Shita-Michi". It stands today as a reminder of an old way of life from a bygone era.

Highlights
