Much of western Tokyo, between the Tama River to the south and the Arakawa River to the north, is built on the plateau. Its northern section is located in southern Saitama Prefecture. It consists of an alluvial fan formed by the ancient River Tama with a layer of volcanic ash on top, many meters deep.
