Escape to Mitake

I often miss nature when I walk around Tokyo. As one of the most modern cities in the world, Tokyo has so many skyscrapers and concrete buildings. Coming from Indonesia, I find myself missing the sceneries of trees, mountains, and nature in general. I had a chance to visit Mitake recently. The trip took about two hours train ride from Shibuya station. I was surprised when I started leaving the modernity of city life and into the natural beauty of Mitake. I kept looking outside the window throughout the train ride. The air was fresh, and there weren’t many people walking in the streets. There was a huge river that became the spotlight of my trip that day. The water was so cold and many people came to fish.
