    Omiya Park, a small Zoo is free to say things you know? Family with a small child is friendly to your wallet with children small animals and meet the defiled will be healed. Keepers who are attentive to customer-oriented perspective of the animal. Enjoy the cuteness of the small animals.

    The space for the animals I thought small. You can see the discomfort of some by narrow space. But overall worth it.

    A nice quiet park that has things for everyone to enjoy. A free zoo as well as a playground for the kids. A retro style merry-go-round is also great for kids and adults as well. An reservoir at the 2nd Omiya Park where people fish and a jogging path a few km long takes you around the park. Many restrooms sprinkled in and around the park.

    Beautiful park with lots of cherry blossoms and a large number of street food stalls compared to within Tokyo. Went 2weeks ago before peak season but can imagine being more atmospheric and busy during peak bloom. Had one of the best and largest portion of Kara-age there too!

    There is a nice pond and some very nice Cherry Blossom trees when the season is right. The NACK 5 stadium located here is the home of Omiya Ardija soccer and the adjacent Hikawa Shrine (once favored by Emperor Meiji) is impressive.

    Nice quiet park with a free zoo and attractions for kids. In the spring the Sakura are beautiful as well.

    Went during hanami on a weekday, it wasn't very busy- so, just about the best hanami you could hope for. A nice park, quite large. It's a bit of a walk from Omiya, but the walk itself it pleasant so if you include it as part of the trip, its a nice easy trip for those with kids.

Where to stay in Saitama

Not truly an established tourist destination, the accommodations of Saitama remain rather one-tone. Close to the main train stations that are such a key feature of the city, because of their connections with Tokyo, you'll find the majority of accommodations here, primarily coming in the form of business-style hotels. Modern, fairly ordinary, and with pools and restaurants as standard, they offer a decent place to bed down for the night. The depth and variety of Tokyo's accommodations lie just a half-hour train journey to the south.
