Visited here a couple of years ago, inspired by the description in the World War II era autobiography of pioneering female media personality Tetsuko Kuroyanagi. The valley was a place of adventure for children from her alternative-style elementary school. As I walked through, I could sense why. It is also (I believe) one of the few valleys of this type in the Tokyo area.

Great place, you'd never know it was there until you went down there.
