One of the most beautiful gardens I've visited and it's all FREE. Off the exit in Tachikawa. It is easy to get to. You do need walking shoes, the park is huge, but easy to walk. The trails are very clean, the flowers magnificent and depending on the season, you just might see the cherries in bloom. I didn't get there in time, but still enjoyed the beauty of the park. The green, the water lillies, etc, etc. Don't miss it, you'll be sorry. For those of you who might tire after a while, there is a trolley available.
