Let's Go To See Colored Leaves In Edogawa By Bicycle!

都立篠崎公園役者寺行船公園永福寺
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
