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.

4. "What / Where to Eat" in Fuchu, Tachikawa, Machida
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.
