    I don't think there is such a big park in Tokyo. Boat ride parks and tennis courts, baseball field, walking trails, etc. It is great to take a walk.

    Spend according to local, good value from what you don't know, but this park is. Closest to shakujii-kōen is the boat the boat pond. Around the pond is possible both walking and jogging. Across the road is the recommended back in addition to the three ponds. Guests can enjoy cherry blossoms, leaves, first Sunrise. I was taking pictures of sukeban DEKA and kyonkyon, though. Three ponds at the entrance to the subject a little playground. Imagine the little stores and shops. (Since ancient times have only one shop is a candy store), food and drink is to bring. And please take home garbage for the environment.

    Three parks with ponds, two of the shakujii pond, bird watching in the perimeter of the pond, deck-promenade has been built. Three ukishima-JI pond wetland plant communities are communities is provided as a natural monument of the country in 12/1935. Remains of shakujii castle ruins with some of this and the signs, such as description, brief details are known. Considerations, and crows often held meetings of amateur photographers shooting, photographers were not attentive to others walking at tripod I may get in the way of walking. Fishing in the pond is prohibited.

    Good for relaxing, jogging or walking in the park. We can enjoy cherry blossom in spring and red leaves in autumn.

Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
