This is one of the representative small Shrine in Japan. We can see such a shrine anywhere in this country. Red and white flowers of Japanese plum are in bloom. From old days, Japanese people have been praying in front of the shrine in order to wish abundant harvest and our happiness. This shrine is dedicated to Mr. Michizane Sugawara, who is famous as a god of studying in Japan.

This is an overview of 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.
