Takaosanguchi Station - Keio Train Interior / 高尾山口駅 京王線車内
Tama

Annual trip to Tokyo, August 2012. Keio train interior.

Empty rows of seats and a 3-minute idle time until departure out of Takaosanguchi Station provided a brief window of opportunity to take a snap of what a Keio train looks like inside, completely unobstructed by anyone.

I was hopeful this could be the start of a quiet ride heading east towards Setagaya Ward where I would alight. After walking up and down Takaosan twice taking two different routes that day, a quiet ride home was what I was hoping for. But the train filled up pretty quickly after a few stops and soon it was standing room only. What was I thinking?! I forgot this was Tokyo after all...

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.
