A lot of Japanese plum trees are in full bloom in Kogesawa, which is located at the north of the famous Takao mountain. Several hundreds of plum trees are planted on the hill. Japanese plum trees, which are in bloom in Feb. or March, is known as flowers come out ealy in the spring.  Different from cherry blossom, we can enjoy a faint and sweet smell of the flowers.  We can walk around the hill only on several days in the flower season. The Chuo Highway is running just near the hill.

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.
