  • Not much to say for this place, if you want to go relax somewhere that has less people compared to Inokashira park, check out Nogawa park. Lots of open spaces and overall a chill place to be  more »
  • As indicated in the title, a little walk in the park before heading back to Tokyo is highly recommended, especially, that the Museum is in the Park. After having trampled hours, a good ride allows you to stretch your legs, take a great breath of fresh air and find a little solitude or at least calm after the cries of the children. The sublime foolish trees even in autumn and I took a lot of fun to walk there before returning to the overburdened public transport.

  • Watch the NOGAWA Park fall foliage, and reminds me of Rainer Maria Rilke. Is the Herbst (autumn). It fell dead leaf whirls. Poets see it fall like leaves with is that my neck to see. This poem entitled Herbst (autumn) in the winter that, at the same time it is in the nature of winter and winter of my life.

  • Great outdoor place. Has a river that kids can catch fish, waddle and walk on and just enjoy a good splash. Can catch lotsa interesting insects. They have an awesome playground.
  • Beautiful riverside park with plenty of wild birds
  • A superb park in spring time-consuming surely my favourite in Japan. Excellent facilities, wide open spaces for games, few restrictive rules and a healthy proportions of countryside (butterflies, a nature reserve, a river to damn etc.)
  • Great landscape; spacious and peaceful. It can be packed with families (therefore it's noisy) during the weekend.
  • Beautiful setting in the middle of the city. Trees, open space, and bike paths. Playground is fun for kids - zip line and obstacle course.
