Shinagawa Kumin Park, in Tokyo's Shinagawa ward, is one of Tokyo's best kept park secrets. This 13-hectare blend of different types of scenery, hundreds of trees, and large saltwater lake, is a must-visit for any park-lover.
The Park is a sprawling, naturally landscaped retreat from the city bustle running north-south, over a kilometer in length, and almost 13 hectares (31 acres) in area. Parks closer to the center of Tokyo may be equally as beautiful, but the size, diversity, natural landscaping, and multifarious facilities of Shinagawa Kumin Park make for a more liberating feel of getting away from it all, and offer more to do, especially for children.
