  • This park is very huge (56 hectares) and well maintained. It is a public park, hence no entrance fee. I was there in early Sunday morning. Some locals were already there, while many started to arrive. By the time I left the park, the huge car park was already full. This is a popular place for locals having their picnics. One can easily spend 2 to 3 hours exploring the entire park. There were family bicycles for rent, seating 2 adults and up to 3 children. Some locals took the boat cruise along the waterway. One can also take the lift up the observation tower (300 yen) for a good view. I enjoyed the walk, fresh air, greens and flowers. Two sections were particularly beautiful, one filled with vast array of blue flowers, and another filled with pink flowers. The highlight is Flower Museum towards the other end of park. The flowers in the garden were gorgeous and colourful. We spent 2.5 hours leisurely exploring this place, with many photo shoots. Recommend to visit this park if you have half to one day to spare. Getting there-At Hamamatsu bus terminal, go to bus stop 1 and take bus number 30. Journey is about 1 hour, 690 yen. Alight at the last stop, ie terminal. Note the bus is very infrequent. Entire bus schedules going to the park: Weekdays - 07: 26, 8:04, 9:04, 10:04, 11:04 Weekends - 07: 36, 8:31, 9:02, 10:04, 11:04, 12: 04 Entire bus schedules from park back to city: Weekdays - 12: 13, 17: 11 Weekends - 12: 14, 14:12, 15:12, 15:55, 17:20

  • A vast park, but not to pretty in autumn. What we enjoyed most about this visit was a trip up the garden tower. The winds were blowing strong that day and made the visit all the more fun. We were fort...  more »

  • A lot of fun and will amaze you of the views..... good thing that no entrance fee and you could walk all around... Best place for whole family bonding...
  • Such a beautiful place. I came here during winter and there are still a lot to see. The best thing is that there is mo entrance fee, although some spots may require a small fee but there are just about two of them. The place is huge and the sceneries are amazing. Best during summer.
  • Nice garden, good for cycling around
  • Recommended walking spots free of charge as possible. You can walk, pet has some exhibits cannot be allowed, but most basic pet pets OK area as lead hand. And lively plant garden is very well maintained and good feelings. It is strange how can operate free of charge. So there are more places to rest from children to the elderly will, would enjoy.

  • I think it's good place to check before you leave there is impressive about flowers, and when not to. Hat measures is required because the wide venue during the summer months. Location of walking walking walking etc. From the gate can be cut back as far as the boat is also available.
