When we lived in Japan, we used to take the kids here on the weekends sometimes. It was a nice, leisurely train ride from our apartment. The reasons I love this park are numerous, but to name a few... First, it is definitely quieter than Ueno park. Ueno is great for the zoo and museums, but this one is great for relaxing with the kids. The zoo here is also quite nice. Second, there is a big lake with rental boats shaped like swans. Third, the cherry blossom trees are beautiful. And, finally, it's in the suburb of Kichijoji... which has reasonably priced department stores for household goods, plants, etc. AND a terrific Irish pub that serves the most amazing food and drink. The pub, by the way, is not actually in the park, but a short walk from it. It's just a nice way to spend the day away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
