Otonashi Water Park | Oji
Definitely a super local spot, Otonashi Water Park in northern Tokyo’s Oji district is a beautiful little oasis with a very traditional Japanese vibe. Marvel at the beautiful cherry blossom trees from the cute wooden bridge or dip your feet into the tiny canal which flows through this district. Don’t expect any grass though as this park paved in a traditional way with big stones. If you are lucky you might be able to grab one of the few tables which are ideal for a hanami picknick. While in the area we also recommend visiting the nearby Asukayama park or taking a ride on the Toden Arakawa Line - one of Tokyo’s last street cars.
