This park/garden is located about 100 meters east of the south exit of the Kokubunji Station on the Chuo Line in Tokyo. It is very easy to get to and is located on the south side of the street.

Despite its size, it had more beautiful trees, ponds, flowers, and scenery of any garden I went to in Tokyo. What drew us to this park, however, is the fact that it has a bamboo grove.
