Annual trip to Tokyo, Aug-Sep 2011. Day trip to Takaosan. Impressively large cedar trees grow here, particularly near the base of the mountain. The ones seen in the photo are found along Trail No. 1, not that far from the start of the walk from the Takaosanguchi station.

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.
