Roka Park is a metropolitan park located in Setagaya Ward, also known as Roka Koshun-en Gardens (蘆花恒春園).
The former residence of Tokutomi Roka, a great writer active in the Meiji and Taisho periods, was donated to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and became a park, which can still be seen today.
The Roka Memorial Museum is also located here, and visitors can learn about the lifestyle of Roka when he was writing.
The bamboo grove of moussochiku trees is also tasteful and reminds us of the Musashino area. In addition, there is a field athletic field and a flower hill area with Takatohikohigan cherry blossoms, wisteria trellises, and other flowers that bloom from season to season.
This park is more of a resting place for local residents than a playground, so it is a place where one can quietly enjoy the nature of Musashino and the homes of great writers, and is recommended for people of all ages who want to relax.
The Setagaya Literature Museum is located nearby, making this area a must for literature lovers.
