About Kasai Rinkai Park

Located at the east end of Tokyo, next to Tokyo Disneyland.

A large ferris wheel and an aquarium can be enjoyed in the park in front of Tokyo Bay.

There are restaurants and shops, but it closes at night.

There is a convenience store in front of the station so you can have a picnic anytime.


The cherry blossoms in Tokyo a few days ago, so this week I will share information about the Sakura Picnic.
