Shiofune Kan-non temple is famous as the temple of flowers in the suburb area of Tokyo metropolis. In the Golden Week (holiday season in Japan from the end of April to the beginning of May), a square in the temple is surrounded by numberless flowers of Azarea trees.
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.
