Located in Setagaya Ward, this metropolitan park is famous for its lawn and cherry blossoms under the theme of a park that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The park’s history dates back to wartime, and the large green space that was decided in 1940 as an urban planning project to commemorate the 2600th anniversary of the end of World War II was used as an air defense green space during the war and as a golf course in the postwar period.

The vast lawn and cherry blossoms combine a sense of openness and history. Within the park is the Family Park, a vast lawn area, where picnics and cherry blossom viewing with a packed lunch can be enjoyed not only by families but also by people of all ages.

In addition, there is a bird sanctuary where visitors can watch wild birds through observation windows, and there are many other spots for strolling, including an unusual fishing bridge over the Yado River that runs through the park.

The Setagaya Art Museum is also located in the park, so in addition to nature, you can also enjoy art. The Bajikouen Park and the banks of the Tama River are also nearby, and the park is dotted with places to enjoy animals and nature.
