This is a viewpoint of mountains, akiruno city area and cedar forests. The forest is named as the "Minato-kumin-no-mori", which means "the forest for people of the Minato Ward in Tokyo". The Minato ward is located in central Tokyo, so the forest is prepared and maintained for the children in the Minato Ward. It was very hot day, so walking to this point was very hard for me.

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.
