Couple of interesting statues, and a nice park along the river. If you walk down to the bridge, there is also a nice walk along the river.

Great park to relax in on sunny days. During Cherry Blossom season, you can come here and see the cherry blossoms and enjoy drinks with your friends. On occasion the park hosts events too.

During Sakura the park is full of food stalls and happy people enjoying the cherry blossoms on the grass or from the food vendors’ tables.
As a park it is nothing special, what makes it fun is the plentiful cherry trees and people compacted together enjoying food and drinks. During cherry blossom time it also have evening lights which is fun, bring your jacket for the evening cherry blossom viewing.

Nice park for viewing the cherry blossoms, with plenty of food stalls during the season. Seemed to be a very popular spot with the locals. It would benefit from benches or public art for interest the rest of the year.
