Our family spends quite a lot of time here. There's beautiful landscaping and scenic spots, fountains for the kids to play and collect tadpoles in when it's hot, and open spaces for games. Parking and restrooms are available and there are vending machines at the base of the ropeway.

Nice to walk around and enjoy the open spaces, the ponds, the fountains and the foliage. Good for people-watching, too, as many locals come to the park for strolls

After crossing Kintaikyo Bridge, follow the map given to you when you purchase your tickets for the bridge and you will enjoy the different sights in Kikko Park. Firstly after crossing the bridge you will have to cross the road that runs along the river so take care as it is a busy road. You will find some souvenir shops... More

I love all the different sceneries here at this park. I have taken wonderful pictures of family here and explored the different locations. You can spend all day observing and learning about different cultures of Japan from this site.

As you come off the Kintaikyo Bridge, walk straight and you will be in the park. It's a nice place to have a leisurely walk. From there you will find several other areas to visit. Use the map given to you when you pay to cross the bridge.

if you come to see Iwakuni KintaiKyo bridge walk to the other side of bridge. This lovely place has magnificent garden and some Japanese architecture. Japanese calf fish and cute lil ducks swim around the canal. it makes a very beautiful sight. Just drop by here cos its next to the Iwakuni Castle Rope way Entrance.

In Kikko park, there is the old resident of former lords of Iwakuni. There are a lot of Plum tree and Cherry Blossom tree in the park. It's the best place to take a breath and relax in Iwakuni.

Kikko park was an old residential site of former feudal lords of Iwakuni. Different flowers and plants would be in full bloom in each season. Walk through the park and turn to right to reach ropeway. Kikko park was among the top one hundred sites for cherry blossoms in late Mrach to early April in Japan
