Kongo falls
Tama

The kongo falls is a small fall located on the foot of Mt. Imakuma.  Most of the people lived in Tokyo may not know this small fall, but it is very impressive. To access in front of the falls, we must go through the tiny tunnel, which is seen in the opposite direction of the falls. At the day I took a picture, the second minor waterfall on the down stream was almost frozen. A small Kongo statue is seen at the left of the falls, which may be the origin of the name of the falls.

More About 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.
