Mt. Usukiyama is one of the so-called Tokura Three mountains. It is not so easy to reach the summit as you would imagine from the low height. Several routes are there to come here, this time I came from Bonbori via Gumi ridge. It is 2 hours trekking from Bonbori. Today the climate is not bad, but the visibility is not good.
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.
