Annual trip to Tokyo, August 2012. Seiseki Sakuragaoka town centre, just outside the train station.

Photo was taken with reference to Whisper of the Heart 耳をすませば (1995 Studio Ghibli movie). Since my last visit in 2011 a Whisper of the Heart guide map and a post box modelled after Chikyuu-ya (Seiji’s granpa’s antique shop) have been erected outside the train station. The map shows the well-known locations from the movie and the post box is... well apparently not a real one (for mail deliveries) but still defo pays tribute to the movie. Not bad for a 1995 movie to be still remembered like this after all this time!  And it ought to be too, because it’s a damn excellent movie even today.

This is an overview of 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.
