Why Koganei Park is special ?
Koganei Park is an attraction for local residents and tourists. The numerous varieties of plum trees in the park bloom in March, and the Cherry trees in April, providing a desirable setting for exercise enthusiasts, photographers, picnickers, and nature lovers.
The park's Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, which opened in March 1993, features buildings characteristic to different historical periods and those built by famous Japanese architects. The buildings were moved from their original locations and arranged at the museum site to mimic the set up of a village.
What to explore at Koganei Park?
The central part of this vast park in western Tokyo is best explored by bicycle. There are about 120 bikes available for pre-schoolers and their parents to hire within the park (¥100-¥200 per hour), and when your child tires of pedalling, you can reward their hard work with a spot of sledging. There's a 17° artificial, turf-covered slope built into one of the park’s grassy knolls, and it's wide enough for at least a dozen sledges to race down at the same time. You can buy a sledge or borrow one of the park’s by queuing at the bottom of the slope. The park also houses the open-air branch of the Edo-Tokyo Museum.
