Okazaki City Guide

Higashi Koen

Higashi Koen ("East Park") covers 26 hectares (64 acres) of prime land.

The park includes running and orienteering courses, a zoo (more for children though - an elephant, monkeys, camels and so on), and some beautiful ponds.
The park is forested but also well tended. Early in June it is famous for its beautiful irises, well worth a look - especially at night when the park is illuminated. Ideal for a romantic walk! The park closes at 9pm though - better not make it too late.
Flower Park
In October the red leaves (especially with the pagoda and pond) are beautiful and attract many Okazakians out for a stroll. There are many areas to relax or let the kids play.

How to get there:
To get to the park, take the Meitetsu bus from Higashi Okazaki (takes about 20 minutes).
