In spring, cherry blossom flowers are in full bloom around many Schools in Japan. In this School, Seikei University, a lot of old cherry blossom trees were planted. Usually cherry festival is held on the first Sunday in April in this school, but it was not opened in 2013 because of bad weather.
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.
