Many old Japanese houses are reconstructed in this park, "Fuchu Kyodo-no Mori". The large house with white roof (Tanaka-family's House) seen in the right side is an old wooden building of a merchant of fabrics used more than 100 years ago. The black house in the left side is originally built in 1888 and used as a drug store in the Meiji period.
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.
