The Ohizumi Chou Park is located in the Nerima Ward of Tokyo, Japan. An old Japanese and US military base used to stand on the land until the land was turned into a popular sports park for the Nerima area in early 1990. Since opening, Ohizumi Chou Park has become very valued by residents of Ohizumi-gakuen City.



Ohizumi Chou Park has a long history in the area as it started out as a Military Academy. Training of Japanese soldiers took place on the land with some of the most innovative military equipment of that time. There are still traces of these special fighting facilities.

Following WWII the area was given to the US military as troops and US station. At this time it was converted into a US military base where many of the post-war projects took place.

In 1990, the land was given back to the Japanese government. It was found that a park, the Ohizumi Chou Park, best fit the area and so it was constructed.
