The park is located on the site of the former Tachikawa American Air Base.

And it is designed to serve as a recreational facility as well as an evacuation site in the event of a large-scale disaster.

The vast site is bordered by five stations.

The entrance fee is 450 yen( 4.5 dollars).

You can also rent bicycles.

I recommend for those who want to get around more efficiently.

It costs 420 yen ( 4.2 dollars) for 3 hours and 530 yen for a full day.

This is a great place to have a picnic on a sunny day.

The grass area in the middle of the park is popular for people playing with their friends and families.

Canola flowers

The canola flowers are blooming too!
