Hikarigaoka Park in Nerima Ward (and partly Itabashi Ward)is rich in nature and is has a number of sports facilities .

The total area of the park is approximately 60 hectares, of which more than one-tenth, or 6 hectares, is a vast lawn with approximately 1,100 Someiyoshino and yamazakura cherry trees planted.

The weeping cherry trees are also famous for their beauty, although in smaller numbers.

Enjoying cherry blossom viewing on the spacious lawn is fun for a family picnic, and it is also a great place to rest and relax after working up a sweat at one of the park’s many sports facilities.

In addition to the lawn, the cherry trees lining the park are also beautiful, and cherry trees are also planted around the perimeter of the park.

The promenade along the perimeter, especially on the southwest side, is especially beautiful and is a hidden hanami spot. In the surrounding area, Toshimaen Park is located to the south, so this park is also a good place to relax after a day of fun.
