Beautiful park with all kind of different gardens in one park. My personal recommendation : please go to the Japanese garden! Please mention a small fee will be asked by entering this park, it’s worth it!

First visited this park in very rainy conditions and because it was so beautiful decided to return on a sunny clear day. Autumn colors were amazing very serene walking around, flat with paths easy for the elderly.

Definitely well worth the (cheap if you ask me) JPY200 (50 for kids) entrance fee. Beautiful grounds, and very peaceful.
