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.
