“Beautiful setting and lots of activities”
Review of Akigawa Valley

Akigawa Valley
Ranked #2 of 37 things to do in Akiruno
Attraction details
Reviewed July 11, 2014

The Akigawa gorge is apparently the whole stretch along the Akigawa river and it is not a particular single spot for easy review, so I am going to highlight our main activity, which was fishing. There is a specific fishing place at (Akigawa international trout fishing) and for 33$ pp you get a permit and a fishing rod, while pretty much everything else (bait, BBQ, wood &coal, drinks) are available for an extra fee (the BBQ for 30$, coal for 10$). They release fish at certain times, but since they had very few people fishing this day (only one other party, but I heard that on special holidays they can get up to 700 people!) they released some for us to get started, and then again at 1pm. With 3 rods we got around 15 fish which they clean for you and then you can put them on the grill (no kind of eating utensils come with the BBQ set). This is a fantastic activity and especially our 10 year old had lots of fun. Not sure how well one would get along there with only English, the owner seems to understand everything that I said, but was too shy to speak, but everyone there was super friendly and even gave us some extra roasted and salted fish to bring home. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Honjin Ryokan for the night and then next day we hiked up to the Hossawa Falls, another nice activity. And then, from the train station about 3km away is a forest area with 10,000 of beautiful Hydrangea.

Akikawa Keikoku is located in western Tokyo.
If you would like to do fishing with a family, I will recommend Akikawa International traut fishing center.
This fishing center discharges a mass 3 times on a day.
You can borrow the tool of BBQ and an official in charge guts the fished fish.
If you want to do mountain stream fishing alone, you should go to the upper stream by car further from a station for about 1 hour.
