Came on a public holiday and the place wasn't too busy - was quite windy when we came so could be the reason.
It's an awesome park which is only around 1 hour drive from Tokyo.
The park is huge with hiking trails, biking roads and rent a bike shop also athletic and mega long roller slide for kids to slide, climb and burn energy.
Large lake at the bottom with large Koi you can feed.
