In Japan, plum flowers are known as the sign of spring. They usually come in February, but in this year cold days last till the mid. of March, so this is the first plum flowers scene for me in this year. This park is very small one in the residential area. Sengenyama park is about 5 min. walk from here.
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.
