This park is situated near the Shinrin koen station on Tobu Tojo line. There are bus to reach the park from the station. The has a very big area and its almost impossible to cover full park just by walking. Every season has attractions for the tourist. In my opinion the best time is the autumn. The autumn colors with illumination creates an amazing view.

A great place to spend an autumn afternoon! Just watch out for spiders.

For a national park it is quite pricey from the entrance fee to parking to food to courses. Even if you pay for a course or class you still have to pay the entry fee and park entry. However, there is a great range of play areas, equipment and facilities. You can even rent bikes and segways, but you aren't allowed bring your own bikes in. They have special events on throughout the year.

This is an amazingly big, beautiful and convenient park. The cycling inside is safe (one way direction only). The nature is beautiful, and there are plenty of spots to stop and picnic. Highly recommended!!!
