In coming weeks, I would be writing about my little wallet-friendly weekend trips in and out of Tokyo, all for catching the autumn foliage.
While many Tokyo-ites chose to visit Mt. Takao（高尾山）, an hour west away from Tokyo, I decided that maybe Sagamiko (相模湖)would be more humane, in terms of the crowd.
Just 10 minutes away from Takao by the JR Chuo Local train, I think I made a pretty good decision. :) I would recommend this place for a little cosy family picnic because there's plenty of space and picnic-friendly greens at the Sagamiko park（相模公園）.
How to get there from downtown Tokyo:
At JR Shinjuku (新宿）, catch the JR Chuo Special Express/Express Train（中央特快／快速） bound for Takao（高尾）.
Alight at Takao, and change to the JR Chuo Local Train (bound for Kofu-甲府) and alight at the next stop, Sagamiko Station（相模湖駅）.
