The Impressive Otonashi Shinsui Park is conveniently located a 1-minute walk from Oji Station near Asukayama Park in Kita Ward. The park was built on the old channel of the Otonashi River and has been selected as one of the 100 Best Urban Parks in Japan.

The park is decorated with water, rocks, and greenery, and a promenade has been developed. The cherry blossoms blooming all over the park and the presence of the Otonashi Bridge that passes above the park are famous features of the park.

The cherry blossoms create a tunnel on the well-maintained stone pavement, and the wooden bridge, pavilion, and other Japanese-style structures are calming.

Strolling along the paths carpeted with fallen petals is a pleasant experience, and the fantastic contrast of the illuminated cherry blossoms, bridge, and city buildings creates a small but relaxing park that is also a hole-in-the-wall cherry blossom viewing spot.

Asukayama Park, a famous cherry blossom viewing spot, is also located nearby, so it would be interesting to compare and contrast the two different cherry blossom viewing spots.
