Very large park. Nice play area for kids with 2 old timey trains you can go into, picnic tables that look like houses, and a huge castle in the middle. Good walking trails, make it look like walking in woods with wooden railing and rock stairs. Very Japanese and good shade from the sun. Hydrangeas were beautiful this time of year and a lot of them! Close to the Sakura tram and another train station. Plenty of benches along walking area to sit down. Bathrooms and drink vending machines of course. They have a fountain but it was not running...😞.

Excellent park for young kids and adults. Situated at 5min by foot from Oji station, it is of easy access. Adults will enjoy the beautiful
Flowers during the hanami season. Kids will certainly enjoy the (short) funicular and the many play zones (sliders, swings, etc...)
