Local Specialties Fish from river and harvest from mountains

Called "Tokyo's backroom," the Okutama area is rich in nature with beautiful trees and valleys and has totally different characteristics from central Tokyo. Fresh water fish such as yamame <cherry salmon>, masu <trout>, ayu <sweet fish> and haya <dace; also called ugui> live in local rivers including the Tama River, the Akikawa River and the Nippara River. They are also served at local restaurants in the area. Wild edible plants such as warabi <bracken>, zenmai <fiddlehead fern> and taranome <bud of aralia> are found in spring, while kinoko <mushroom>, kuri <chestnut> and kaki <persimmon> are some examples of fall harvest from the mountain in the area.
