Higashi Koen

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

The park includes running and orienteering courses, a zoo (more for children though - an elephant, monkeys, camels and so on), and some beautiful ponds.
Deer
Fountain
Swans
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.
Irises
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).
