Mt. Usukiyama (842 m) is one of the Three Tokura Mountains, the other two are Mt. Ichimichi (795m) and Mt. Kariyose (687 m). The mountain is not high, but the summit of it cannot be easily accesible. We must walk on a narrow trail for about 2 h from the foot of the mountain. The condition of the day was the worst in my visit, it was lightly rainy, humid, hot and very foggy as you see the panorama.
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.
