This is well worth taking time out to visit. A wonderful oasis of peace and calm away form the hustle and bustle of Tokyo...A peaceful haven complete with temple...bit difficult to find car park...but stick with it..itw worth it.

Just 15 minutes by train from Shibuya this valley is an unexpected gem within Tokyo. It is not just the lush valley but also the temple at the end or beginning of the walk depending on where one starts. There is a little waterfall for takigyô ceremonies. The walk takes less than 30 minutes, thus, one may prefer to return... More

It is quiet, it's beautiful with lots of greens in a bysi city. The walking distance is really comfortable for children and parents. The end of trip is a quiet room with free drink, benches and a piece of playground to enjoy sunshine and breeze.

Todoriki Valley is located in Setagaya. This is the only Valley in Tokyo. There are many trees, flowers, fishes and wild birds. Not like other nature of Tokyo Downtown which is mostly artificial nature, the nature of Todoroki valley is the real nature preserved for long time.

A bit narrow to walk around, but this is a nice place to have a picnic in the heart of Tokyo. Nature and Japanese gardens are simply stunning. Not well signposted to those who cannot understand Japanese. When you get out of the Todoroki station on the Tokyu Ooimatchi line, look out for the signboard with "等々力渓谷(Todoroki Valley)" and simply... More

We walked the Todoroki Valley on a hot summer afternoon. The change in temperature and atmosphere as soon as we entered the valley was striking. We started with a visit to the shrine at the entrance to the valley, then walked down the stips and along the footpath that is beside the river and waterfall. It was a nice break... More

It's a nice short easy walk, but nothing spectacular so don't expect some haven in nature. There might be a lot of people there on the weekend and the paths are narrow so you might get stuck behind some very slow walkers. Otherwise, it's quite pleasant.

Once you walk down into Todoroki Keikoku, you forget that you are in the middle of a very busy city. It's quiet and a nice walk.

I think this place is quite underrated among foreigners but popular among elderly people. You will experience walking in a place like this in Tokyo. Using your rubber shoes is recommended
