Trip to Tokyo, Aug-Sep 2013. A pergola covered by a viney tree in a park in front of the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum in Koganei. This provided a much needed shade on a hot summer day. The museum itself was closed on account of the day being a Monday, but I knew about that – I was just passing through the area on a walk from Inokashira Park to Kodaira Cemetery. I’ll return to the area in the future, this time to check out the museum.

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.
