Its nice year round. Nice waking trails along the river. Japanese garden features. Statues of world religious leaders.
Reviewed:2017/09/15 Perfect place for a quiet Picnic and excellent Sakura viewing in Spring
The Tetsugaku-dō Park in Nakano is flanked by the Myōshōji River and is a good place to relax and take in nature. This park is a perfect spot for cherry blossoms (sakura) viewing during spring time...
Reviewed:2015/04/24 cute japanese park
It was a lovely sunny day, and we enjoyed the view we had. We went there, because we stayed in a nearby airbnb place. It is not a touristy place, there were only japanese people and mainly old men...

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
