Komae is a popular place to head to in Tokyo as many of the city’s main attractions are close. The Open-Air Folk House Museum and the Museum of Japanese Houses are amongst the popular places to visit. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit Nihon Minka-En and Snova Mizonokuchi.
Stop by some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region such a rewarding holiday destination. Often talked about art galleries, include the Setagaya Art Museum.
If the sun is out, do what the locals do and head outside to the local natural destinations. Follow the paths through botanical displays, watch the passing parade, or just listen to the birdsong at Kinuta Park and the Jindai Botanical Gardens. The ecological havens such as the Hyogo Island Park, give visitors an insight into the animals and plants that flourish in the local area.
If you love sports, you’ll enjoy seeing local legends, the Tokyo FC, doing battle in nearby Ajinomoto Stadium, Chofu. On match days the stadium overflows with blue and red, as crowds join together to cheer on their home-grown heroes.
When you’re ready to put your feet up after a long day exploring the charms of Komae, check in to one of the area's range of bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. The Hotel Livemax Chofu-Ekimae, the Tokyustay Yoga and the Chofu Creston Hotel are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
