Surrounded by Flowers in the Tokyo Suburbs at Showa Kinen Park
The little pond and stream contribute to the calm atmosphere, which helps you relax while being surrounded by nature. The flowers match each other very well and create a harmonic play of colors.

Visiting Showa Kinen Park during Golden Week makes for a perfect day trip, not just for couples or friends, but also for families. Entrance will be free on April 29th, and on May 5th it is free for elementary and middle school children as well as for their guardians. To explore the whole park we suggest to plan a full day to see all the attractions, playgrounds, events, flower fields, etc.
It is also possible to rent bicycles, unicycles, pedal boats or rowboats. At the BBQ Garden, you can hold your own grill-party, as well as play disk golf, petanque, croquet, lawn bowls and much more.
Food stands and restaurants are located in nearly every area of the park, where you can enjoy Japanese food and snacks as well as the limited time tulip soft cream.
