Machida is a municipality located in the western part of the greater metropolis of Tokyo, Japan. In 2006, the population of the city was 411,513 and an area of 71.63 square kilometers. An oasis of rolling hills with many large parks, botanical gardens and even some rice paddies terraced into those hills, Machida is one of the best-kept secrets in the steel and concrete jungle of Tokyo. A thirty-six minute ride by express train to Japan's single busiest transit hub, Shinjuku Station, Machida is home to many a worker heading into central Tokyo each day.
Mornings in Machida often offer majestic views of the world renowned Mount Fuji to the west. The ample verdancy of the aforementioned rolling terrain comes alive with sweeping panoramas of pink during the spring's cherry blossom season. Many a Tokyoite from other regions too, escapes to Machida on weekends to enjoy a day of hiking through the gardens, hills, and pedestrian bridges elevated over lily ponds.

Machida is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in Japan worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of Japan.
