I went there today. Perhaps this is the first review after the earthquake. When we arrive the station near the main gate, some train staff showed us a sign asking us to enter the park via the eastern gate. This means we need to get...More

This park is huge and great for cherry blossom viewing. But have to avoid visiting during the weekend when sakura is in full bloom as it is crazily crowded since this is a very popular cherry blossom spot for the locals.

It's really a nice and beautiful place for adults and children to go around. Especially there are few foreign visitors so it's quiet and peaceful we visited there during December and Maple is fantastic!
