Machida Squirrel Garden

Reviewed By Stephen E - Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Went here on a rainy day to satisfy my wife's squirrel obsession. Not having seen many before in Australia, we thought they were hilarious. The open garden houses hundreds of squirrels, and the second you step outside they run over to get food off you - climbing and jumping and sneakily stealing whatever you have to offer them.
Staff were very polite (and understanding of our very limited Japanese speaking abilities!), and we had a good time. If we go back to Tokyo, we'll definitely check this out again.

Yakushiike Park

Reviewed By Nakagawa1971 - Cairns, Australia

Walked here from central Machida. Squirrel Park across the road, good for families with kids 400 ten entry fee. Yakushiike is free.This park does have a couple of places where you can buy food. But if you wish to purchase food and have a picnic is a good place to do so. A visit to the jinga at the top of the park. Will find very nice holymen wanting to explain the history of the amazing carvings within the building.
This park is alive in Sakura season, locals sit within the grounds and families celebrate.Really good piece of forest within a city. Upper trees date back hundreds of years.

Machida Tenmangu Shrine

Reviewed By Rockcress

There is a wonderful Shrine Sale on the First of every month (except January). It is a great place to find unique gifts and antiques. There are lots of vendors in an extremely close proximity to each other, so small children may have a difficult time.

Kyushirasutei Buaiso

Reviewed By 60超え - 福島市

あえて「経営」と言わせてもらうが、維持・経営にはお金がかかるのはわかります。公立の施設ではないですし。入場料が高いか安いかは見る人がどう感じるかです。庭を含めた全体の凜とした感じが薄れています。

Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts

Reviewed By Ted C - La Mesa, California

This is a nice smaller museum which is devoted to graphic arts, A.K.A. prints. Mostly contemporary, with a strong emphasis on Japanese prints.
I have seen some outstanding temporary exhibits here, and some much less so. Skip the School exhibits unless you are a glutton for punishment. However, the end of December exhibit of work by college and university students is a good way to get acquainted with some cutting edge things. Also they have a sale of prints by these students, quite inexpensive, and once in a while you can pick up something from a kid with real talent.
It is located about 500 Km due east of the Machida JR Station, it is an easy uphill walk, just keep going straight down into the valley and at the bottom turn right and follow the little stream through the rather charming park until you come to the museum. Going back to the station requires a little more effort (climbing) but there are stairs located just to the north of the museum that make it not too bad. Obviously you can also take a taxi.
In January of each year they have an exhibit of the works donated to the museum during the preceeding 12 months which is sometimes interesting.
Give it a try, if nothing else it will expose you to some prints that are not the traditional ukiyoe.

Serigaya Park

Reviewed By dbinhou7511 - Houston, Texas

A very nice park to visit in the middle of Machida. A short walk from the train and bus station. Located along a small valley including the slopes on the side. Various little pools and Gardens along the route. Birds and trees. Just missed the cherry blossoms which was disappointing. At one end is a museum with beautifully done large flower pots. I'm sure the park is quite busy on the weekend. Take your camera, you will surely find some good photos to take.

Oyamadairi Park

Reviewed By 自在人 - 東京

行ったのは平日の昼前でしたが、無料駐車場は既に満車でした。
公園の規模に対して停められる台数が少ないので、休日、この駐車場に停めるのは難しいでしょう。京王相模原線の多摩境駅を出て、急な坂を登って歩くと尾根筋の遊歩道(旧戦車道路)までは徒歩10分位でしょうか。
他の方も書かれていますが、普通の公園というより、自然保護区域の森(サンクチュアリ)に囲まれた散策道といった感じです。旧戦車道路の「尾根緑道」は雰囲気がいいですし、よく整備されています。
「尾根緑道」から北側の駐車場側へ降りる「鮎のみち」は、一部区間に急な坂があります(迂回路あり)がいい雰囲気です。また「大田切池」の池に立つ枯れ木立は印象的な景観です。
これらを順に見て歩くと、公園を半周するだけでも1時間以上かかります。多摩ニュータウンにはいい散策路が多数ありますが、ここはその中でもオススメできると思います。

町田在住の友人宅から徒歩で訪れました。とても静かなエリアで散策やウォーキングにぴったりの雰囲気でした。
地元では桜の名所として大変有名な場所との事で、春にはそれに合わせた桜祭りもここで行われているそう。次回はそのタイミングに合わせて足を運んでみたいと思います♪

Tadao Park

Reviewed By 三代目くらの助 - 東京

親しい友人が町田市内に数人おり、一年に何度か町田周辺に訪れる機会があります。
今迄に連れて行かれた市内の薬師池公園等に比べると、忠生公園はどちらかと言うとご近所の方が散歩に行かれる様な印象。雰囲気はのどかですが駅からは遠く、わざわざ訪れるには物足りないかもしれません。
