This oak tree was recentry "found" and trail around the tree was prepared early in this year. We must climb up a trail for about 10 min. from the parking lot. People say that the tree is the largest oak tree in Tokyo Metropolis. Many japanese people may not know there are a lot of forests such as this in Tokyo.
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.
