  • Located just next to the Dai-Ichi Hotel Ryogoku, Yasuda gardens. Seems named Grand Champion sumo wrestler (which has also become the address) between the two countries, who died in disasters such as earthquake and war damage, such as the Tokyo air raids, including Tokyo and enshrined the large and respectable Memorial. Many people went in the morning, local residents (? ) Was a quiet Park are a number of people walk. Japan garden.

  • Errands and walked near the toilet was so I stopped by. The pattern is a big Tower, is no ordinary Park. It might be good to relax, Memorial Park has restrooms and plenty of greenery, sunny and Nice.

  • The garden is a whole section that commemorate the deceased. The inner temple shows the history times big fire in Tokyo. The exhibition is not very big, but it reflects a good story in the past.

  • 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
