We were stronglynrecommendedto go to the park but honestly I would not recommend it. Maybe because it's Summer it was very hot and humid - not something you want to do walking around. I was all wet bythe time I got to the tower which was another great disappointment it cost ¥820 to get up just to see the green patches of the the park with history all in Japanese and none in English. Unlike the Hanging Garden in Osaka which offers a very unique and pleasant experience getting up the Sky Building. This has nothing except for the city view which is not impressive. I get better view from my hotel which is free.
