The largest tributary to Tama River, the Akigawa River flows through the middle of Akiruno-shi. The 20-kilometer-long Akigawa Valley is a popular spot for outdoor activities such as riverside fun, fishing, camping, and barbecuing. In September, the city comes alive during three big festivals when the dazzling mikoshi (portable shrines) parade around during the Sandai Festival. Here, you can enjoy both nature and culture.
