This is a beautiful park and one of the best places to view cherry blossoms in the spring. However, it is also heaven for Pokemon Go players with dozens of pokestops, most with lures, and lots of Pokemon to catch. Right outside the Tsurumai Station on the Tsurumai Subway Line. Enjoy nature while upping your Pokemon game!

The Japanese garden has ponds, bridges, walking paths and areas designed for strolling. Several sports facilities are located along the perimeter:... More

After the release of Pokemon GO in Japan this summer, this park became famous for its water fountain of which shape is similar to Poke Ball viewed from the top. You can check Google Maps, type Tsuruma Park Nagoya and you get what I mean. When you visit the park and walk a bit to the fountain, you can see... More

Tsuruma park is located near JR Tsurumai Sta. This park is holy place for POKEMON GO! Player. Because this park's view from the sky looks like "Monster-Ball". I recommend this attraction.
