Night viewing of Cherry blossoms indeed different. Beautiful. My friend brought me to this area which was about 15mins away from where she stayed. There was a big crowd of people gathering and drinking. It really let me know some culture of Japanese.

This place was famous as a cherry blossom viewer in the Edo period and a politician had his house and garden there. However now it is a park for public. When spring comes, many cherry blossoms bloom, which makes the scenery very beautiful. A lot of residents and tourists visit the park at weekends in Spring and people have Sakura... More

I was able to visit this park simply because it's near to where i stay. This is a very simple park but it was landscaped to nicely to provide you excellent viewing pleasure of the sakura trees. i was there on 30th March, so sakura trees only started to bloom and was not able to fully enjoy it. However, the... More

During Sakura season this place is busy but more walkable than places like Chidorigafuchi. There are some museums adjacent to the park. The Paper Museum has interesting temporary exhibits on paper folding (origami) and the museum itself is fitting given the area's importance to the paper industry.

Beautiful park to visit during cherry blossom season. The park is adjacent to Oji Station just outside of downtown Tokyo. The trees create a canopy over the park, making it a perfect setting for hanami (cherry blossom viewing parties). The park sits atop a hill; it's a 2-minute walk from the station. Alternatively, a tram is available from the north... More

We took the train to Oji station for this park. On exiting the subway station, we followed a group of elderly locals right to the river walk before going to the park. Sakura in full bloom lined the river! The local authority certainly had the river landscaped very well, making it easily accessible. We went to Asukayama Park after enjoying... More

On Wednesday 1st April, my fourth day in Tokyo, I decided to go to visit Asukayama Park with my Japanese friend who had never been there before. Just as the name of the park, it is on top of 'yama' - higher ground. When we arrived at the platform of Oji Station, we saw a sign to three exits: to... More

Not one of Tokyo's greatest parks, but some of the best cherry blossoms in Tokyo come spring. Definitely worth the trip then.

What actually is so good about Asukayama Park? I'm tempted to say just look at the photographs, but instead here are a few things our kids liked: - an elephant slide as big or bigger than a real elephant; - an old yellow tram and a train engine to climb on, sit in or run around; - a three story...
