Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kanto / Tokyo Prefecture / Tokyo / Minato / Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park
Built on the grounds of a former feudal villa, today Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park serves as an oasis of lush greenery and thick forest in the midst of the city. Wander through the trails, cross over small bridges, and enjoy the delicate landscape of Japanese gardens. On the top of the slope, children can frolic in the playground equipped with swings, slides, climbing walls, and plenty of open field to run around. In the eastern side stands a large public library, while a big pond--home to plenty of ducks, turtles, and sizeable koi--dominates the western part. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Tokyo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park Reviews
有栖川記念公園はもと盛岡南部藩の下屋敷で高低差のある敷地を活用した緑豊かな公園です。5月上旬に訪れた時は、新緑とツツジが綺麗で良かったです。 都会の真ん中とは思われない程自然が豊かなところも良いです。アップダウンはありますが、散歩するにも良い公園です。 more »Arisugawa Memorial Park is a lush park that utilizes the grounds with a difference in height in the lower residence of the Southern Morioka Clan. When I visited in the beginning of May, the fresh green and azaleas were beautiful and good. The place where nature is abundant so that it is not thought that it is the center of the city is good, too. There are ups and downs, but it is also a good park to take a walk.
20年ほど前にこの近くで就職活動の面接に来た際にえらく緊張して、こちらにきたことがあります。深呼吸したら不思議と心が落ち着き、平常心で臨むことができたのを今でも覚えています。周りは変わって会社施設もタワマンに変わったけど公園は変わってませんでした！ more »When I came to this area about 20 years ago for a job hunting interview, I was very nervous, and I came here. I still remember being able to take a deep breath, calm my mind, and face it with a normal mind. The surroundings changed and the company facilities changed to Tawaman, but the park did not change!
Amazing park in the center of Hiroo. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Beautiful, peaceful, full of colors, ponds and trails. Highly recommend going on a walk across the park if you happen to be around.
Really incredible multi-level park. There is a large gravel recreation area, several smaller alcoves with children's playground equipment, as well as the normal Japanese amount of relatively clean restrooms. Only a few minutes from Hiro-o station, this park is also so densely wooded that, at times, it feels more like a nature preserve. There are easy paved paths for accessibility, but, for the more adventurous, numerous smaller rocky paths lead off to quiet, hidden spots to enjoy the natural beauty. And, unlike most of Japan, there are also plenty of benches for those who love to sit and read surrounded by trees. Lovely gem in the heart of Tokyo.
