I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.

I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!

Koku-Koen(Aviation Park)

I went to the Aviation Park at Tokotozawa city 1 hour from Tokyo.


This is where Japan’s first airfield was built in 1911.

The park underwent changes, and in 1978, it was opened as a civic park.

The park is so large that it is said to be 11 times the size of the Tokyo Dome.


There are the Aviation Museum and the Tokorozawa City Library.

Also there is a Japanese garden, a tea ceremony room “Saishotei,” an outdoor stage, tennis courts, a baseball field, a dog run, and various other facilities.


As it is called “Aviation Park,” two actual airplanes are on display here.

As soon as you exit the Aviation Park Station on the Seibu Line, you will see a airplane YS-11.

It’s a blue and white propeller plane that looks like a Shinkansen bullet train.

This is the first propeller-driven plane that Japan produced domestically after World War II in 1962.

The other, located in the middle of the park, is a C-46, an American-made transport aircraft that was used in Japan.

Six aircraft are also on display at the Aviation Museum too.

Japanese garden

I went to the Japanese garden.

There was a pond with a small waterfall and swimming carp.

There is also a tea ceremony room where you can have tea and Japanese sweets.

The set price was 440 yen( 4.4 dollars).

There is also a running course and a lawn area.

There are joggers running and many families picnicking.

If you are interested in airplanes, how about visiting?

You will enjoy the Japanese ordinary holiday here.

I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
