Tokyu Corporation - Tama, Japan 

A spacious city nestled among the Tama Hills that spans an area of 50 million square metres.

Tama Garden City, which is the general name given to the area that lies between Kajigaya and Chuo-Rinkan stations on the Den-en Toshi Line, is a composite residential community that lies over an expanse of luscious green hills next to Tokyo's southwestern region just 15 to 35 kilometers from the heart of Tokyo. A population of approximately 500,000 resides within this vast developed area that extends a total of 50 million square meters over the Tokyo metropolitan city of Machida, and the cities of Kawasaki, Yokohama, and Yamato which are located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Beginning with the announcement of its fundamental concept in 1953, the development of Tama Garden City has continued to present day, based upon the principle of "the creation of a truly prosperous, human-oriented urban community'". It is an urban center that constantly remains one step ahead of the times a composite city in a brand-new era that strives to ensure a peaceful coexistence between nature and society.

Our urban development projects have relied on the support and cooperation of local residents for success in the implementation of land readjustment projects, and have been carried out in conjunction with railway line construction.

Tama Garden City exists as the largest private - sector urban development project ever to have been undertaken in Japan, covering an area of approximately 50 million square metres. What truly sets this grand project, begun in 1953, apart from others is the fact that its vision is not limited to the mere development of residential lots, but provides for the overall enhancement of the region's functional efficiency as well, based on ideal planning. Rather than allowing for private corporations to come in and develop the region on their own, land readjustment procedures utilising urban development methods were implemented with the cooperation of local organisations, and construction on the Den-en Toshi Line, which serves as the primary means of transportation to the region, was conducted parallel to residential development.
