Fire festival "Dondo Yaki"
Tama

"Dondo Yaki" festivals are held at many place in Japan in the middle of January. People roast small rice cake on the fire and eat it, then pray that they will be fine in the year. Many people came around the fire with a long stick, on the tip of it there is a rice cake ball. A man was announcing that "it is still dangerous to go near the fire, so wait a while".

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.
