The deepest settlement in Tokyo


Speeding Up
Visited the deepest settlement in Tokyo. It is called "Oku" and close to the favorite Ramen shop down Kazahari toge or Tomin-no-mori. Going down from the ramen shop about one km, make left to Minetani area. It is 10Km from there and 360m elevation climb. I posted some pics.

It was fun to climb up and see a small settlement where about ten houses are hanging on the steep slope. As an instant cultural anthoropologist, the shape of the house was interesting.

Fortunately I did not encounter with any large unleashed Doberma type of watch dog which I did in a different area.:)
