Kinshi Park in Sumida Ward, Tokyo, was opened in 1928, and the Tokyo Sky Tree can be seen from the park.
The park was developed as part of the reconstruction project after the Great Kanto Earthquake.
It has a gymnasium, grounds, swimming pool and other facilities, and hosts the Cherry Blossom Festival in spring and the Sumida Festival in autumn.
The park has tennis courts, a baseball field, a general gymnasium, a jogging course, and other sports facilities, as well as a variety of playground equipment for children to enjoy.
The shopping mall “Olinas” is located in front of the park, where visitors can also enjoy shopping.
The park is also home to 122 cherry trees, including Someiyoshino cherry trees and weeping cherry trees, making it an enjoyable place to view cherry blossoms in the spring.
The park was formerly a warehouse for the Imperial Army’s military provisions and fodder storehouse.
During the war, it was used as an air raid shelter and as a temporary burial ground for those who lost their lives in the war, and in the 1945 Tokyo Air Raid, over 10,000 bodies were temporarily buried here.
