What does TAMA mean?

Tama is a municipality classified as a city, located in Tokyo, Japan. Its southern half forms part of the Tama New Town project, Japan's largest residential development, constructed in the 1970s. The city is located in the northern part of a large area of hills in south-western Tokyo, known as Tama Hills, which spans Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures. The entire region is historically referred to as Tama; therefore there are many place names scattered throughout the area with references to the name "Tama" which are not within the city limits. For example, Tama is the name of a ward several kilometres away under the jurisdiction of Kawasaki City in Kanagawa prefecture. Tama River marks the city's northern boundary. Tama is home to Tama Hills, a recreational facility of the U.S. Air Force, intended for use by United States service members and their families, as well as Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force service members and their families. It is also home to the Sanrio theme park, Sanrio Puroland.
