Otonashi Shinsui Park
Otonashi Shinsui Park is located in the north of Tokyo, right next to Oji Station. It is a wonderful place to relax and feel the traditional Edo atmosphere. The famous Ukiyo-e master Utagawa Hiroshige captured the beauty of the place in the series “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo”. It is also a nice and not much crowded place for cherry blossom viewing. In old times the area was favorite of daimiyo and samurai for hanami parties.
