Showa Kinen Park

Tachikawa Travel Showa Kinen Park

A national park full of greenery with a large site equivalent to 39 Tokyo Domes. In addition to enjoying the seasonal flowers in a large panorama, you can also enjoy barbecue, cycling, and boating, and in the summer, you can enjoy the largest pool in the metropolitan area.

Showa Kinen Park is a national park located across Tachikawa and Akishima. You can enjoy various beautiful flowers in the park, which boasts a scale of about 35 Tokyo Domes.

One of the features is that you can see seasonal flowers regardless of the season, such as cherry blossoms, camellias, daffodils, tulips in spring, hydrangea and sunflowers in summer, cosmos in autumn, and southern ka in winter. Seasonal events such as fireworks festivals in the summer and illuminations in the winter are held.

Since the park is quite big, you can enjoy renting a bicycle to get around or riding their park train to get around the park. Both of them are offered at a reasonable price for visitors. You can also ride a low boat or cycle boat at Waterfowl Pond. For families, there are areas where children can move their bodies as much as they want, such as Children’s Playground and Children’s Forest.

Although there is a free area and a paid area of the park, nearly all of the park’s area falls under the paid area. You can buy an admission ticket at various entrances of the park.
