Let's Go To See Colored Leaves In Edogawa By Bicycle!
Autumn is the best season for seeing colored leaves. Late October, many
leaves gradually change from green to yellow. Maple trees, gingko trees
and red woods are very beautiful in fall. In this page, an idea of a recommended
route for riding your bicycle to visit some spots in Edogawaku
to see autumn views of colored leaves on woods under clear blue sky is
introduced. Edogawaku is a city laid on the east end of Tokyo, it is usually
called 'bed town of Tokyo'. But it has some exciting spots to see the autumn
views. Actually, you could visit them on foot, but you might visit one
or two spots a day, therefore, bicycle could be recommended. The total
distance of this route is about 20 kilometers long, it is good for you
to ride in one day. In addition, Edogawaku is flat, it means that it has
no mountains and hills in it. But only there are some slopes before banks
of rivers and bridges connecting to them. You could easily ride on your
mama-chari (city bike) to complete the route.
The noted spots are listed below
|The Noted Spots
|Tsubaki Daini Kids Park
|Ichinoe Nanushi Yshiki Residence
|Daiunji called Yakushadera
|Ichinoe Sakaigawa Water Park
|Ichinoe Makkotei Residence
|Furukawa Water Park
|Ukita Chuo Park
|Fureainomori Ukita Park
|Komatsugawa Sakaigawa Water Park
|Chuo Shinrin Park
|Honisshiki Tenso Jinja
This order of visiting these spots is only my idea. I think that it is
reasonable to visit all these spots in a day. The views have very different
colors in between morning and afternoon, then you could enjoy visiting
them in opposite.
Now this trip starts from Shinozaki Park
that has one of the most exciting autumn views in Edogwaku.
The autumn views in Shinozaki Park begin from zelkova trees, then leaves
on maple, gingko and redwoods gradually change their colors green to yellow
or red. You could enjoy different views whenever you visit.
