Shōwa Kinen Kōen 昭和記念公園

It only took me 12 hours to upload these photos !I truly hope you all like them. The internet I am using here at Chiba is not the best but it get’s the job done!

If you are now in Tokyo or arriving here in two weeks, you should go to this park right away! You can see what Japanese Autumn colors are all about if you visit there !

This place is a little far but that does not matter when we are talking about everything this park has to offer. Now you are saying yourself “what is so great about this park compared to Ueno or Shinjuku parks” well,,, EVERYTHING ! as you will see from my photos this park has the most beautiful Japanese garden you’ll ever seen in Tokyo area and also it is HUGE so much to see and do!

Park entrance: 400Yen
Access : Easiest way to this park I noticed was the JR Chuo Line from Nakano. Stop at Tachikawa station (the park is right next to the station 7mins walk)

Many famous photos were taken in this park as well that you can see in tourist magazines and books.

Here are some photos I took at the park! check for the rest at my flickr !

There was also some very pretty Bonsai plants as well ! you can find them inside the Japanese garden !

Koi コイ You can find this fish in pretty much all the famous parks of Tokyo and maybe in all of Japan (not sure about that Japan part) Very interesting fish but they seem to be very hungry always.

I came to the park a bit early as you can see.
