About this sight

Located in the northern part of Tokyo on top of a hill, this historical urban park was opened in 1732 by Yoshimune Tokugawa, the eighth shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate. Featuring about 650 cherry trees, it is a popular spot for blossom viewing. In addition, the park houses three museums: Asukayama Museum, a Paper Museum, and Shibusawa Memorial Museum. The observation deck boasts a view of the passing by trains. As the walk up the hill can be hard for elderly and/or handicapped persons, the Kita Ward Office built a free-of-charge monorail line to access the park in 2009. The route's length is 48 meters and takes about two minutes.
