During Sakura season this place is busy but more walkable than places like Chidorigafuchi. There are some museums adjacent to the park. The Paper Museum has interesting temporary exhibits on paper folding (origami) and the museum itself is fitting given the area's importance to the paper industry.

Beautiful park to visit during cherry blossom season. The park is adjacent to Oji Station just outside of downtown Tokyo. The trees create a canopy over the park, making it a perfect setting for hanami (cherry blossom viewing parties). The park sits atop a hill; it's a 2-minute walk from the station. Alternatively, a tram is available from the north... More

We took the train to Oji station for this park. On exiting the subway station, we followed a group of elderly locals right to the river walk before going to the park. Sakura in full bloom lined the river! The local authority certainly had the river landscaped very well, making it easily accessible. We went to Asukayama Park after enjoying... More

On Wednesday 1st April, my fourth day in Tokyo, I decided to go to visit Asukayama Park with my Japanese friend who had never been there before. Just as the name of the park, it is on top of 'yama' - higher ground. When we arrived at the platform of Oji Station, we saw a sign to three exits: to... More

Not one of Tokyo's greatest parks, but some of the best cherry blossoms in Tokyo come spring. Definitely worth the trip then.

What actually is so good about Asukayama Park? I'm tempted to say just look at the photographs, but instead here are a few things our kids liked: - an elephant slide as big or bigger than a real elephant; - an old yellow tram and a train engine to climb on, sit in or run around; - a three story...

Asukayama Park is not as well known for cherry blossoms as Ueno Park, which makes it all the better for viewing (not quite as crazy). The park sits atop a ridge overlooking the Sumida River valley. It was one of three places where the 8th shogun planted flowering cherry trees in 1720 to create a diversion for samurai families stuck... More

Given that not many tourists know about this park, therefore it is way less crowded here during sakura season than the popular Ueno Park that's located just a few stations away. To get to Asukayama Park, just take the JR Keihin-Tohoku line from Ueno station to Oji station (about 9mins train journey, costs 160yen). The park is located just up... More
