I have driven past over the ravine probably a hundred times since living in Tokyo, but never knew what a lovely treasure I was passing. From the station, you walk Todoroki Ravine Parkdown a charming cobblestone path that leads down to the over.

As you walk along the paths of the ravine, you can enjoy the sounds of nature and study different plants. There are wooden boardwalks, stone stepping stones and cement paths for little feet to explore. At the far end of the Todoroki Ravine Park, you can climb some step stairs to visit the temple one side of the Ravine and a lovely Japanese garden & bamboo grove on the other side. Down and back in the Ravine will take about 1-2 hours depending on how much exploring takes place. Enjoy your time in the green space by taking a picnic lunch!

Note, there is a public bathroom at the far end (the end furthest from the station) of the Todoroki Ravine Park. The walkway is passable in a stroller, but you will need to carry down and up into the ravine. There are no shops or vending machines in the Ravine so bring your Todoroki Ravine Parkown or pick-up an obento near the station.
