Here, two parks are located adjacent to each other at the intersection of Yokojuma River and Sendaihori River in Koto Ward. Yokojukkengawa Water Park is maintained under the theme of “Waterfront for Ward Residents,” and has a 1.9 km long, 5.1 ha wide water surface with facilities such as a boat rental facility and a water athletic facility.

Sendai Horikawa Park was developed under the theme of “Forest for Ward Citizens,” and is the largest waterfront park in Tokyo with a 3.7 km length and 10.4 ha area. It has seven unique forests, including the Fureai Forest and the Fruit Forest, and rows of cherry trees.

The two parks are quite large and intersect each other, so it is a bit far to walk around the parks. There is a bicycle path and a series of greenway parks in the neighborhood, so families can bring their bicycles and enjoy cycling.

The area is also rich in greenery, with Minamisuna Greenway Park and the Museum of Contemporary Art in the vicinity.

It is ideal for picnics with a packed lunch, viewing cherry blossoms in spring, and playing in the water in summer.
