Getting to the Stadium
To get to the Musashino Forest Sport Plaza, take the Keio Line from Shinjuku and get off at Tobitakyu Station, which is about a five-minute walk from the station, so trains are generally the way to go.

Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Tokyo as a reference for planning your trip.
Unlike the 23 wards of Tokyo, the Fuchu, Tachikawa, and Machida areas require a certain amount of time to decide where to base yourself when using the train.
Machida is on the Odakyu line, so you can access it smoothly if you use Shinjuku as your base.
Ajinomoto Stadium and Musashinomori Sports Plaza in the Fuchu area are on the Keio line from Shinjuku, which is also easily accessible if you use Shinjuku as your base.
In the case of Tachikawa, you can use the JR Chuo line. The Chuo Line starts at Tokyo Station, so you can get to Tachikawa without changing trains, making the area along the Chuo Line from Tokyo more accessible.
In the Fuchu, Tachikawa, and Machida areas, there are business hotels at each major station, so it is difficult to expect to find high class hotels in this area.
If you want to stay in a high-class hotel, you should consider Shinjuku as your base.
The Mitaka Ghibli Museum in Mitaka is one of the most famous tourist spots in this area in Japan.
In the Tachikawa area, there is the Showa Kinen Park, which is one of the most famous national parks in Japan.
In Tokyo, there are stores everywhere you go.
It just depends on what you want to eat and where you want to eat it.
We will pick out a few restaurants for you, but in the case of Tokyo, there is no way to cover them all, so we recommend that you look for them yourself on the Internet.
As with sightseeing, popular stores may have lines.
Therefore, if you are short on time and want to go to a popular restaurant, you may not be able to eat there, so we recommend that you pick up several restaurants in advance.
