Tamako - Daidarabocchi Head / 多摩湖付近 だいだらぼっち
Tama

Annual trip to Tokyo, Aug-Sep 2011. Day walk circling Tamako along the Tamako cycling road (although Tamako itself was inaccessible). On top of a small mound in a small park stands this stone sculpture. It turns out to be the head of Daidarabocchi, a mythical giant spirit.

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.
