nio statues in front of dainichido temple
Tama

These are the Nio statues standing in a gate of the Dainichido Temple in Haijima.  Nios (pronounced as [n'iou]) are muscular guardians of the Buddha, and we often see the statues in many japanese temples especially in the gates of the temples.  The statues are made of wood and were built in 1314-15.  In 1975, the statues were repaired, then the production-years have been found.

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.
