Its a nice park nearby where you can get a nice view of tokyo skytree and the river. I went during the cherry blossom season and it was nice to walk along the river and look at all the cherry blossoms. Other than that its a little bit out of the way from every thing and there really signs a whole lot to do there but it is quiet and relaxing.

Beautiful, clean, and peaceful park with an amazing view of the Tokyo Skytree. The pond has fish, ducks, and turtles, it's always so beautiful. The newly built Mizumachi (water town) is right there as well, offering many choices for food, drinks, and entertainment. Excellent spot for a picnic! Public toilets are also available.

Amazing park especially when the cherry blossoms are blooming. There is a small pond in the middle and nice quaint paths through the hilly parts.

A bit grubby and down at heel, but on fine days girls stroll here pretty in kimono.
