Cycle (non)stop〜Editor’s choice 18

For cyclists riding on the Asakawa cycling path, a nice place to take a break is a footbath facility in the Kitano Disposal Center in Hachioji, Tokyo, which sits right next to the path. The 20-kilometer path is a great way for cyclists to approach the Takao area in Hachioji. It also happens to run along the Asakawa river, one of the tributaries of the Tamagawa river. According to the Hachioji city government’s website, the footbath facility is open from Thursdays through Sundays in addition to national holidays.
