It’s a somewhat unique river in Tokyo because much of the riverbed is covered in grass, with well-worn walking paths. This is a contrast to the many Tokyo rivers with steep concrete walls that prevent people from walking in the river.

Nogawa River 野川 details:

  • Water system: Tamagawa river system
  • Length: ~ 20.5 km

Here’s a view of the river near Chofu airport:
