Kinuta Park, referred to as Kinuta Koen in Japan, is a popular park located in Setagaya City, Tokyo. The reported size of roughly 400,000m classifies the park as medium sized. With such a large area, over half (approximately 240,000m) is completely natural with greenery, native plants, and special wildlife living on the beautiful land.

The park is recognized mostly for its incredible amount of Cherry Blossom Trees growing all over the large park. The scene is said to be magnificent in the spring, when the trees first bloom, with vivid colors and bold patterns.



Prior to being the Kinuta Park, the area was a large golf course. As the Setagaya city began reorganizing it was determined that the land would be needed as a greenery scene to maintain the environment the city residents were seeking.

In 1957, the Kinuta Park opened for all to see and since has become one of the most popular destinations in the city of Setagaya.
