There are two Ginkgo Avenues ; one is along the canal near Tachikawa Gate. 106 ginkgo trees line up along 200-meter long avenue, and gingko reflected in the water is also beautiful. The other one is at the sports area in the middle of the park, and is called "Katarai Promenade". A golden tunnel made by 98 ginkgo trees line along the 300-meter long street. You can enjoy seeing yellow leaves contrast with the autumn blue sky, and walking on a golden carpet of fallen leaves.

One of the largest park around this area. The place has been used as a US military base during the Cold War era. The place has been completely renovated as a park with trees and gardens, after Emperor Showa passed away. Next to the park, you will find a small museum of him. There are various ways to enjoy the park, by walk or by bicycle, for BBQ or for swimming.

This park is beautiful. Make a day of it because there is so much to see. There is a huge field that you can play frisbee, football, have a picnic or just relax. I wasn't able to see it all in the time I had but I will go back. I was able to get some great photos. A must see place.

Awesome place to beat the heat, near Tokyo! Big lazy river, shallow wave pool, and some cool slides. The line for slides was too long, or it would have 5 stars from me! Great for kids of all ages.

Frequent this park for its disc golf course. But this park has a wide variety of uses. Bbq, water park, open sports field, biking, and walking trails. Very well kept and beautiful landscape.
