Mitou-otaki falls is located at 1100 m above sea level on the halfway up the Mitousan mountain. The area has been maintained as the Tomin-no mori (Forest of the people in Tokyo) by Tokyo metropolis gov. The falls has been completely frozen in cold winter, but the day I took the picture, the half of the ice was dissolved as shown in the panorama. We can reach here by 20 min. walk from the Shinrinkan house of the Tomin-no mori park.

This is an overview of Tama

Tama area is the name of the western part of Tokyo Metropolis.  It consists of 26 cities, 3 towns and a village.  A lot of people (about 4 milion) live in a eastern half part of the area.  However, there are many mountains in the western part of Tama area, and there are very little flat land.  Many hiking spots are in the western area, so you can enjoy walking on the trail, camping, and so on.  If you see the beautiful mountain scene, you may not believe this is also in Tokyo.
