Located in Koto-ku, Yumenoshima Park which fantastically translates to Dream Island Park is a metropolitan comprehensive park with an area of about 43 hectares surrounded by canals and waterways and was developed on the site of a former landfill disposal plant for garbage.
The park is full of greenery that gives no hint that it used to be a garbage dump, and is centered around the multi-purpose coliseum, a spacious circular lawn park, where many eucalyptus trees and cherry trees are planted, especially eucalyptus trees, and the largest eucalyptus forest in Japan.
The park is also equipped with a baseball field, a stadium, and the BumB Tokyo Sports Culture Center, a facility for enjoying a wide range of sports, and is used by students and groups in a variety of ways.
There are also many cultural facilities, including the Yumenoshima Tropical Botanical Garden, where visitors can appreciate the plants of the Ogasawara Islands, which have been designated a World Heritage site, and the Daigo Fukuryu Maru exhibition hall, which was exposed to radiation as a result of U.S. hydrogen bomb testing.
There are also many parks in the area, and Odaiba and Tokyo Disneyland are also nearby.
