    In the large park, there are gyms and bike paths, such as. When the Tokyo Olympics in the middle of the Park, the tower was built, which can still be seen. Tend to be in the gymnasium, mainly used in sports contests of ball games, such as volleyball, handball, badminton, martial arts series tournament used. There are also demonstration of Aikido was held at komazawa Olympic Park gymnasium, he participated in. It was a sports hotel are equipped with air conditioning, easy-to-use. Park is a running course, there were people running.

    I love how picturesque the track route is; you can walk around the park, be completely surrounded by nature, and feel calm again. Everytime I come here I'm happy. Also it's​ nice to come if you have time and watch the different athletes of all ages go onto the field and play a sport; it has a good community feeling.

    One of my least favourite parks. No real free space to speak of...all astronomy turf for hire, concrete paths, gravel or of course the stadium. Quite ugly in all respects. There is a small area where kids can do what they want amongst some trees, but it is really dusty and the ground is uneven with lots of stones...apart from this they have to go in the playground, so of course can't play football or ball games. Also on concrete areas, even when quiet little children will be told off if they try and skateboard or anything.

    Great park, great for family day out or relaxing alone with a book. Also a running and cycling track. Bikes for hire. Small snack bars located throughout the park, aswell as food trucks. Great place to see changing of the leaves. The only bad thing I can say is only traditional Japanese toilets located in the park, but no big deal really.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. 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. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
