Shinkansen in a park
Tama

This is one of the proto-type car of Shinkansen. Shinkansen train started a business in 1964, and the car No. 21-100 you see was built in 1973. The car retired in 1991, and it was taken here  on a side of a small park in Akishima-city. The car have been used as a small library of Akishima city until now. You can get on the car on every Tuesday to Sunday in the afternoon with some exceptions. Girls are playing a game, may be a variation of Kankeri, that is one of the popular children's game which starts with a kick to a beverage can.

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.
