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.

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.

Actually 4.5 stars, but chose 4 over 5 because of the prices: affordable but you don't really want to pay them. ¥450 for adults (over 15 years old). Rented a bike for ¥420. Rode around and it was real fun, perfect weather and the leaves were out. Worth it if you visit during the fall season.

It was nice in the fall. Unfortunately not everyone disposes of their litter properly but overall very clean. Be ready to walk a fair distance if you want to do the whole loop.

Love this park so much. You can come 3-4 times a year and see absolutely different views around the park. Very huge but cozy.
