Komiya Park is located in Hachioji City of Tokyo, Japan. The primary focus of the parks setup is to excite guests with an authentic feel of the forest. Hundreds of trees, beautiful native plants, and natural landmarks make for a very nice relaxing walk through the naturally serene park.

A walk through the park reveals incredible beauty while the trail also consists of a unique wooden pathway created even more uniqueness in the park. Following the traditional wooden path through the forestry is described as almost magical. Bold flowers, lots of color, green trees, and handcrafted benches all line the sides of the trail.



As with many other Tokyo parks, Komiya was initially created to serve as a disaster prevention zone. In the case of a natural or war emergency city residents will gather in the park to get the latest updates and seek proper shelter. This measure has been taken to prevent deaths such as those in World War II.
