Higashimurayama is mainly famous for the greenery area called Hachikokuyama-Ryokuchi modeled on a scene of the famous animation movie “My Neighbor Totoro” Also, the iris garden called Kitayama-Koen (Kitayama-Park) is famous.
In addition, There are also many wonderful places such as national treasures and other historic temples and shrines.
Besides, this town has many amazing spots like the National Hansen’s Disease Museum: a place of learning about importance of human rights, local sake and beer breweries, and a variety of foods and condiments. Local restaurants are also wonderful.
We hope many people will experience Higashimurayama. This project was born out of this kind of thought.
