Chichibu is a beautiful area in the mountains just north of Tokyo, with a temple pilgrimage route, mountains, rivers and hot springs. We have monkeys, deer, wild boar, bears and other wild visitors! We grow a lot of buckwheat so every second restaurant is a home-made buckwheat noodle restaurant. We are really into flowers, so half of our tourist attractions consist of fields of phlox, plum blossoms, cherry blossoms, iris, dahlia, rhododendron, azalea and more!
Stay tuned for things to do in Chichibu with kids, and other useful info in English.
