It's a huge park. Don't waste your time near the entrance. If you have kids, please head to children's forest. There is boating and.nice flower garden before the children's forest. Park closes at 5 pm. Better to enter early enough.several small restaurants inside. Have fun.

In summer, there are fireworks, festivals, & other activities.
In the spring & throughout the warm weather season there cherry blossoms, cosmos, poppies, tulips, & other flower festivals to enjoy.

This park is very large and has a lovely walkway around it. It's a perfect family place for camping overnight, even a day-long stay is also much enjoyable. They have arrangements for picnic and barbecue.
There is a train-like thing that encircles the whole park. Children can play in the ground. There are many seasonal flower plants. One can easily relax by simply seating on a bench on the park.

Definitely worth a visit to this hidden gem. I would consider this one if the best parks in Japan. I’d recommend planning a trip here during the weekdays as I understand that it can get quite packed during the weekends.
Bike rental services are available at 500 Japanese Yen per day. And 400 Yen for 3 hours. If you want to fully explore the park I would certainly recommend hiring the bikes. You can’t ride the bikes inside the park area, but there are bike tracks and parking within the park gates so it made it a lot easier to explore.
Don’t spend too much time in front of the garden as there’s a lot of people there, but get on your bike, head to the back, and work our way to the front. The whole park is a loop so you won’t get lost on your bikes! Entry fee was approx 500 yen per person as of April 2019
