  • I have not been here but this houses a memorial and grave for the people killed by a fire tornado in the September first 1923 kanto earthquake the Korean victims of Lynch mobs after the earthquake and people killed by American bombing raids on Tokyo. Those people should not have died and they will always be remembered R.I.P.
  • Great Park. Lots of open space to run around and steps to climb. The jungle gym is new and has real fine sand around it that blends into the sand pit. Its a wood jungle gym, with a lot of rope netting. The slide is real fast! Ages 6 ~ 12 but my 2 year old really enjoyed it.
  • This is a place of mourning. It feels more like a war memorial park than a place for kids. The commenters have valid points, but there's more history here than just a play park.
  • Large park.
  • i want stay here
