Superb park just next to train , tram station.
It has got a mini kaho monorail to go up the park, it’s for free.
Nice Sakura trees.
Huge play area for kids to enjoy, near that they have kept old model of a tram and a steam engine.
Great place to spend minimum half day trip with kids.

A great place to enjoy the sakura season. The best part is that it's not crowded. The first thing we saw was the amazing hell covered with falling Sakura. There are amazing flowers also. You can try the elevator which take you to the station and up to the park, and located at the side of the park.
It's also nice place for family picnics.
There was also a very cute cat.
Moreover, there are different types of cherry blossom trees in the park itself. Great place for those who love to spend time at nature and enjoy taking photos.
There is a small shop and restaurant inside the park which it is close to the kids play ground. Well, the kids play ground was the most crowded part of the park.
As the park is located at the station, you can take photos of the passing trains.

This park is pretty epic. I love the play equipment, you can watch Shinkansen going by and, there is lots of grassy areas to sit as well.

This place is a very good place to watch Sakura 🌸🌸🌸if you hate crowded places. Less than a minute walk from the central exit of Oji station. If you don’t up the stairs to the park, you can take the free monorail ride which located right below the foot of the hill. Besides strolling around the beautiful park, you can go to a museum, look at some old trains or look at some historic buildings. During this COVID-19 period, picnicking at the park is not allowed.
