Lake Okutama near Yokota Air Base is a man-made reservoir that provides over 20 percent of Tokyo’s water supply since it opened in 1957. Many visitor enjoy leisurely walks and drives around the lake to enjoy its lush, forested surroundings. The 13-mile Okutama Shuyudoro skyline makes for a nice, smooth drive and the view from the top of the area’s mountain ranges is breathtaking.
