The Seiseki Kinenkan, which means a saint memorial building, was built in 1930, in the memorial of Meiji Emperor visiting here. The building was made of concrete with modern design, and is valuable as one of the excellent architecture of that age.
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.
