Quick Facts

Ranked one of Japan's top 100 places for cherry blossom viewing

Some 2,800 cherry blossom trees are in the park, including the Somei Yoshino variety

Peaceful surroundings under the trees

The park revolves around a large pond traversed by red lacquer bridges, with observation decks providing an excellent opportunity to get a good look at the fish swimming below.

The park's walkways have plenty of benches to sit on, and there's a large, grassy field at one end, creating the perfect place to relax amongst the tranquil scenery. One unique feature of the park is its shrine to Benten, the goddess of health and happiness.

The park is especially pretty during the cherry blossom season, when its many cherry trees come alive with pink and white blossoms. The park is home to nearly 3,000 cherry trees and is considered one of Japan's 100 best places to see them.

Blooming beautiful

During the cherry blossom season, there are food stands selling snacks, festival food like yakisoba, and beer and soft drinks. Even during this season, the park is relatively uncrowded and quiet.

Cherry blossom season isn't the only time the park bursts with natural color. In the fall, the pond is covered with fallen autumn leaves and in the summer, it is adorned with blooming water lilies.
