I recently visited this park which is somewhat off the beaten path and not well known by tourists. My primary goal was to check out the cherry blossoms as I had read it is one of the top 100 places in Japan to view them. The park is larger than I expected and is made up of several large ponds bordered by many sakura trees. The park has hilly parts so you can also see cherry blossoms leading up to the hillside. For the more energetic, you can climb up and trek around the hillsides within the park, otherwise if you prefer a more leisurely wander, you can stick to walking along the paths that border the ponds. I did a mix of both. Wear practical shoes if you want to go off the paths and trek up and around the hills.

The park was very pretty even though the sakura were not fully in bloom. There was a lot of birdlife in the park too! In addition to the sakura, there is a gorgeous Korean garden that is a must see. Outside the main gate to the garden are two very comical liondogs to welcome you and two wooden totem poles all with cheezy grins! The garden is bordered by a lovely traditional clay wall and inside are 2 gazebos, a small pond and stream, some lovely clay urns and a very beautiful wooden structure with stunning decorative wooden panels. You can enter inside the structure and see some traditional wooden furnishings. Don't miss out on this garden if you go to the park!

There are not many places to purchase food in the park- in fact I saw only one shop and it sold mainly confectionary so if you want to go for lunch, bring your own! There are vending machines around the place to purchase drinks and icecream. Outside the park near the bus stop is a lovely little cafe where you can grab a coffee or a meal- limited choices.

To get there, I caught the train to Tsurumi station then Bus No. 07 that dropped me right out the front of a car park and main entry point to the park but note the name of this stop is not Mitsuike Koen (that is the stop earlier) but the next stop called "KOEN SEIMON" (very confusing- i got off at Mistuike Koen and then the driver beckoned me back on the bus!). the bus trip took about 12-15 minutes. But note that the bus has a very limited timetable and there were no return buses from the hours of 2pm to 4:27pm on a weekday. On a weekend or public holiday there is 1 bus at 2:07pm and 3:11pm then 2 buses every hour from 4-6pm. There is a carpark but it is small and during sakura season, it may be difficult to get a park.

Entry to the park is free! For people with children, there are lots of areas for the kids to play in including a rock climbing wall and a slide where you need a piece of cardboard to go down it.

A lovely park for a relaxing picnic and walk!

There is so many beautiful parks in Yokohama, Japanese prize themselves in the beautiful outdoors especially during the Cherry Blossom season, it's a very busy and important time for the Japanese but a great time to go for a visit.

We had a lovely walk in this park today, and it was beautiful even though it's not cherry blossom season. We walked from LiveMax Hotel near Kawasaki station, and spent about 3 hours walking there and back again, including some relaxation-time in the park. The park was really nice and calm, and there were a lot of children playing and people going for a run. If you have some time on your hands and are in the area, we would definetly recommend it!

i recommend here ,come with family -with small kid 1 yr old onward.
u may get to see the korean garden /house in this park.
u can rent the wheelchair or stroller here . ( free or not, i not sure), but normally is free, only need register some information. there are place to jogging, walking, tennis and picnic.
well, bring your own food, and lie down, enjoy the natural environment.
the bathroom here are clean , don`t worry.
well, spring, and autumn ,i recommend here if u at some where near here.
is silent place for refresh your mind.
spring , u may enjoy lake and cherry blossom, got 10 types of cherry blossom trees among this park . bloom at different season. here is good enough , because less people compare ueno park and u can picnic without any fee.
autumn, there are nice view too, i like it. feel calm here.
