If you prefer the English riding style to the Western, Crane is a good choice in the Tokyo area. Membership rates are sky high but if you call and explain you are only visiting Tokyo you will be able to negotiate a fairly reasonable rate. The relatively mild Tokyo winters make English riding a year-round pursuit.
Sunshine stables offer both Western and English riding. The big draw here is the location, which is right on the beach at Chiba, not far from Tokyo. A relaxed ride on the beach is hard to beat. After the ride you can enjoy the club's own picnic facilities. The staff serves up good grub off the barbeque. Explain to the staff that you are not a local and so do not wish to pay any lifetime membership fee.
