Todoroki Town Guide
Todoroki station is only five stations away from Ookayama on the Tokyu Oimachi line. This is a cheerful area frequented by students from the nearby Tokyo City University campus and the local junior high and high school.
With everything that you could possibly need around the station – such as supermarkets, restaurants, a hospital, and more – Todoroki offers a convenient place to live and so much more.
The famed “Todoroki Valley” is one minute from the station and the only one in the 23 wards of Tokyo. Also called “oasis of the city,” the valley is surrounded by beautiful and revitalizing nature that that will whisk you away on a journey far from the city. You can enjoy a wonderful stroll while listening to the beautiful sounds of chirping birds and the calming flow of the Yazawa River. The name of the valley is said to be derived from the term todoroku, which means “to thunder or reverberate loudly,” used to describe the sound of the breathtaking Fudo Falls that lie within. Also visit Todoroki Fudoson Temple and taste test some Japanese sweets, or stop by the Italian restaurant where you can have pizza and pasta in the valley’s lush greenery surrounding you. Todoroki Valley is definitely a wonderful place for everyone – young or old, solo or in a group – to unwind in a relaxing space in nature. Now that the hot summer is around the corner, you know of a cooler place in which to take refuge!
