‘YAKUSHIIKE PARK in west Tokyo’
I visited YAKUSHI IKE PARK in MACHIDA city the west part of Tokyo.
This is a huge nature park with big ponds .
I came across the beautiful wisteria trees of white one and purple one .
There are YAKUSHIDO temple, traditional buildings, many seasonal flowers like peony , azalea , lotus, plum , water mill and cafes .
Also there are Dalia flower park and Squirrel park just outside here .
The YAKUSHIIKE pond was built 1590, then changed as a city park in 1976.
It’s a nice change of pace from busy Tokyo .
Adults like calm and quiet flower park, children will like squirrels park.
