Kasai Rinkai Park

There’s a lot more to Tokyo parks than just Yoyogi and Shinjuku-gyoen. Kasai Rinkai Koen is a seaside park on the edge of Tokyo Bay between Odaiba and Tokyo Disneyland. It’s the largest park in central Tokyo, and is home to an excellent bird sanctuary. There’s also an aquarium, acres and acres of grounds to stroll in, and a huge field of poppies that blooms around Golden Week.

Getting there:

From Tokyo Station, take the Keiyou (not the Keio) Line to Kasai Rinkai Koen Station. It takes about 15 minutes and costs 210 yen. The park is just a one-minute walk from the station.

    Yes… you’re definitely right!
    And these pictures (specially the flowers) are beautiful…
    I do remember Tokyo more for the traditional parks, that’s true…
    And Kyoto for the parks: this time I share your opinion ;-)

    Thanks for sharing this. I haven’t been to too many of Tokyo’s parks, but nevertheless one of my favorite spots will always be Shakujii kôen, a short walk from the Shakujii-kôen stop on the Seibu line out of Ikebukuro.
