Ikuta Ryokuchi Park生田緑地
Located in a corner of the Tama Hills, Ikuta Ryokuchi Park is the largest area of green space in Kawasaki City. Besides plazas, hiking trails and observation platforms, the Park is also home to the Japan Open-air Folk House Museum, the Taro Okamoto Museum of Art and Kawasaki Municipal Science Museum. In spring, Ikuta Ryokuchi Park is famous for the cherry blossom of its Yoshino and hill cherry trees; the best time to view the cherry blossom is between late March and early April. The beautiful coloration of the cherry blossom makes the mountain scenery truly spectacular; the cherry trees at the Japan Open-air Folk House Museum are also illuminated at night. Toilets, shops, restaurants and paid parking available. The nearest station is Mukogaoka-yuen Station.

Kanagawa Main Areas
Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
