Sightseeing Spots

Mori Museum

Famous for its autumn leaves. The garden seen from the Emperor's traveling residence is quite the sight.

This residence, built by the Chofu Domain Mori family 14th generation's Mori Mototoshi, was also used as a traveling residence by the Meiji Emperor.

With its entrance with stately construction, this building with its white walls features a central garden, and a traditional sansui garden meant to evoke a landscape.
While strolling around Chofu, why not come by, and enjoy the same garden view once enjoyed by the Meiji Emperor?
Access from Otani Sanso Approx. 65 minutes by car
