Annual trip to Tokyo, August 2012. Mitaka Ghibli Museum near the Totoro ticket booth. A large Totoro sits in the booth welcoming the many visitors to the museum, but this is for show only – the real entrance to the museum is found on the other end of the passage.

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.
