  • Japan's first airfield is in the Park. Quite a distance away from runway shapes from the air station, beautiful green trees seems nice walks. Decorated with old planes is a vast park long runway and looked like flowers. But the first plane arrived here and how I do.

  • It is a vast site. Want to go to the area of the Park if you come by car, the nearest parking depends on. If you come by train to YS-11 visitors are greeted in the station and air station. Also, from the train station walk Tokorozawa Aviation Museum. Also that weekend early morning hot-air balloon experience.
