I have always been a big fan of this park after I stumbled upon it on my first trip to Tokyo late 2007. Even tho its central location right next to Tokyo Dome doesn’t seem the most relaxing place for a stroll, you would be surprised! The high trees and moving water block out a lot of the noise, and despite its small size could occupy a good few hours of your time wondering about.

The park is about 3 mins walk from Iidabashi Station (Toei Line) but can easily be reached on foot from both Koeakuen (JR Sobu Line) and Suidobashi (Yurakucho/ Nanboku Line) stations. The park is 300 yen for adults and is open between 9-5 daily, there are maps in a number of languages available at the entrance free of charge.

Koishikawa Park is beautiful most of the year round but is especially breathtaking in November when the Autumn colours start to appear, there is also a large Sakura tree near the entrance of the park that blooms late March.
