  • Shakujiikoen station became a station name of the Seibu Ikebukuro line Park, West and East from who get boat in chotto in 5 minutes. Go walk igawa along the shakujii Nerima-takanodai is recommended. Around the pond is a 1.7 km walking and jogging affordable distance, seen a lot of joggers over the weekend. In the summer of cool water and shade definitely revisit while goodness once morei. This is the Nerima be broad-minded and pleasant while enjoying the pond and Green Park.

  • Shakujii Park, shakujii and three from the trees surrounding ponds and two ponds, these ponds are configured. The shakujii is a flat paved roads, three ponds has little down there pretty up and down a waterfront road and scrub forest. December 1st lap, still leaves is beautiful. So there is playground equipment in friendly to families with small children. Enjoy walks the Pokemon craze in summer many gamers are almost gone away, calm down. Chase Park garbage truck he seemed busy.

  • A nice place to relax if you're in the neighborhood (in my case, usually after eating tsukemen at Inosho).
  • At Metropolitan Park, was in good condition, the shakujii and three ponds is located. Pond is the boat to ride the shakujii and natural monument of wetland plant communities into ponds. Park coppice Hill are remains of shakujii Castle. Sanpo Temple on the pond, sanpo temple there. It is famous as 5, IRIS is beautiful and Kingfisher pond. Three treasure Temple pond and Itsukushima Shinto shrine, God of water, that people in wheelchairs could patrol walkway deck has prepared a significant portion of the perimeter of the pond.

  • It is a quiet Park and Tokyo seems unlikely. Big pond boat hire available. Because athletics is recommended for families with small children. Trail around the pond has a relaxed stroll, guests can observe the fauna and flora. In shops as well as light meals are also served.

  • It is good to explore the Park. Lushly mountain greenery and well cared for. Children's elementary school lower grades in easy-to-play, athletic park has play equipment. There are 5 types of athletic, but is comparatively simple to elementary school students. Some children in front of the ballpark to play jungle gym and swings. I think new playground equipment, safe.
