Development of town based upon the participation and cooperation of residents

The Tama Ward, enriched by the lush natural environment of the Tamagawa River and the Nikaryo Aqueduct as well as the Tama Hills in its southern parts, was once known as a farming community famed for the cultivation of “Tama River Pears.” Although a great deal of the agrarian landscape remains, urbanization has progressed within the area in recent years.
Thankfully, a considerable amount of rich greenery still remains. Such an area includes the expansive 120 hectare Ikuta Ryokuchi Park, which is home to several educational and cultural facilities such as the “Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum”, the “Taro Okamoto Museum of Art”, and the “KAWASAKI MUNICIPAL SCIENCE MUSEUM”, which had its grand opening in April 2012. These grounds provide local residents with a popular recreational and learning environment.
The “Fujiko·F·Fujio Museum” and “Tama Sports Center” opened in 2011.
Also, three universities – Senshu University, Meiji University, and Japan Women’s University – are located in the ward. Students of these universities are engaged in a variety of activities in collaboration with ward residents.
Taking advantage of these abundant tourist attractions and other regional resources, the ward is promoting efforts to develop into a lively and attractive area. Collaborative efforts are also being taken with various organizations such as civic activity groups, business establishments, and the three universities.
