Fall Colours Transform Koganei Park
A nice thing about living in western Tokyo is its expansive planned gardens and parklands. The autumn season is particularly stunning with Showa Park in Tachikawa a major drawcard for locals taking in the changing Fall colours. The last couple of weekends I’ve been roaming Koganei Park, though slightly smaller is a relaxing spot to pull out the picnic rug and while away a lazy afternoon – plus the free entry makes it more enticing than its larger sibling. The park is packed with ubiquitous icho Gingko trees and fiery red maples with plenty of cycling paths and a barbecue area to keep families entertained.
