It's huge, so if you got to Lake and think that's it, you're mistaken. You can rent a bike or come by yours and enjoy getting around everywhere fast. Autumn ginkgo trees, spring sakura, BBQ in summer. And winter is still chill and enjoyable too!

The park is quite vast and has many beautiful spots for kids and adults. The ginkgo colors were quite breathtaking especially when the sun is our, but there was a ton of people. I really appreciated the different sections, including the simple open field, the various gardens, frisbee golf course, kids areas, and bike paths. The restaurants/stalls were not overly priced, though I would recommend bring your own food as the food inside the park was rather plain. There are also lots of restrooms placed throughout the park (I remember the map marked at least 40 or 50).
I also appreciate that disabled and one caretaker can go in for free.

It’s truely a magical place in autumn because of the autumn 🍂, it’s so beautiful. The Japanese garden inside the park is a must visit. The Japanese style landscaping and the red and yellow leaves are a perfect match.
The park is popular with both locals and tourist. Having said that, it’s mostly peaceful and tranquil. A perfect place to get away the hustle and bustle of Tokyo city.
The park is MASSIVE, get the most comfortable pairs of shoe, prepare to walk for at least 4 hours if you want to visit every corner of the park.

Stunning flora and fauna. A little far from the city but a must visit when in Tokyo. The bonzai exhibits were a pleasant find. Come during early November for a picturesque view of autumn and golden 🍁
