The first powered flight took place from this hallowed ground in 1911, and now you can observe many examples of historical aeronautical engineering around the grounds and at the onsite museum. Aircraft ranging from large commercial passenger planes to small and nimble fighters all stand gloriously preserved throughout the park. Consider bringing a picnic to enjoy as you sit on the manicured lawns among the metal flying giants.

  • Very large park with lots to do besides the aviation museum. The museum is probably very interesting if you are very into airplanes and can read Japanese. I'm not and cannot so I was not that excited by the exhibits. Kids enjoy this place however.
  • great place if you like planes, or history. Worth 1 visit, but not worth repeating. Tokorozawa was the first airfield in Japan, and was the main training location up to the WW2. Some materials are also in English.
  • This place is not a cemetery, as Google says (at least in Italian). However it's a big park with beautiful colours in Autumn. There is also an aviation museum but I did not visit it.
  • Good for family with small children An Educative experience and large play ground ground..
  • Featuring wide walking lanes to stroll past the park's many unique spaces. Plenty of grassy areas to play or relax on. Weather permitting, the weekend transforms the park into a family filled playland. The lively atmosphere is infectious to even the most jaded.
