In this season, early in april, many Japanese people enjoy an event called Hanami, which means viewing Sakura blossoms. In this year, many people especially lived in the east part of Japan have been refraining to participate in pleasant events such as Hanami from the day of the earthquake. However, in recent days people gradually began to enjoy holidays. This is a little-known cool spot for Hanami. In the day, some families including a foreign group enjoyed viewing Sakura, eating and drinking.
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.
