The wisteria in Ohkuno, Hinode-town is one of the natural monuments designated by Tokyo metropolis. This tree grows in the middle of a low-mountain in the Ohkuno area. Different from planted wisteria trees in some parks, the flowers on this tree do not have elegance, but we feel powerfulness from the flowers. Wild wisteria trees are frequently seen in this mountain area, but the tree is exceptionally large.
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.
