Another Tokyo TAMA

Why we love TOKYO TAMA

The Tama region is situated in western Tokyo. It lies outside of Tokyo’s 23 wards, and is comprised of 30 cities, towns and villages with a total population of about 4.3 million.
This place, adjacent to all the conveniences of the big city, boasts an array of diverse and distinctive facets.

The development of transportation facilities came to represent the face of the city. Despite its status as one of the world’s biggest cities, Tokyo is surprisingly rich in natural features.
The history and traditions of the area have been developed over many centuries. The produce grown in the soils of the region is actively utilized to create a variety of dishes that are gentle on the stomach.

The many that people live, work, and socialize in the area bring a variety of flavors to the Tama region in Tokyo.

The Another TOKYO TAMA project seeks to share the charm of the Tama region with the rest of Japan, eventually expanding to include the rest of the world.

Tama's Festival

Held throughout Japan, there is a variety of large and small festivals. It is said that there are between 100,000 to 300,000 festivals held in Japan. The word "Matsuri" (festival) originates from the word "Tatematsuru," which refers to being in the service of blessed existence.

Hachioji Geisha

The Hachioji textile industry that flourished in the city made it a focal point for the merchant class's social activities. Various Japanese eating establishments sprang up as a result, and Geisha were employed to welcome guests with song and dance. The hospitality industry resulted in the flourishing of the city's Geisha culture. At its peak, some 200 plus Geisha worked in the Nakamachi area.

River Activity

The Tamagawa river is a first-class river crossing the Tokyo metropolis, and Yamanashi and Kanagawa Prefectures. It is hard to believe that such clear waters flowing down through mountains from their source are to be found in Tokyo. The surrounding nature shows off its beauty throughout the four seasons. The varied currents and natural valleys with springs up water are host to a number of businesses offering a variety of river activities.
