Totoro-no-mori is located in Tokorozawa city, Saitama prefecture. It was named after the animation movie which was produced by Hayao Miyazaki from “Tonari no Totoro” (My neighbor Totoro) since the village on this movie was modeled on this area, Sayama Hills. It is mostly like a forest to hike and feel the nature to refresh yourself. There is the Kurosuke no ie (House of Kurosuke) which was in the movie. There are also some museums to learn its history and folklore.
I recommend you to watch the movie before you come this place so that you feel yourself be in the movie and refresh yourself.
