Laid Back Picnic - English -

I enjoy picnics around Tokyo

Autumn is the best season for picnics! / Showa Memorial Park @TACHIKAWA

f:id:LBpicnic:20181110003811j:plainThere is a town on the east side of Tokyo that is suitable for picnics.

The name of the town is "Tachikawa".

By taking JR Chuo Line from Shinjuku, you can directly go to Tachikawa without any transfers.

Let's walk Tachikawa before picnic

The wonderful bakery cafe I found in Tachikawa is about 10 minutes walk from the park.

Walk a little and you should know the atmosphere of Tachikawa.

I first went to buy bread for a picnic.



Walk 10 minutes from Tachikawa Station and you will find a bakery cafe.

Outside seat to feel the sun

Lunch at the cafe is also good value, but I recommend that you take bread and go to the park.

Outside seating looks good too.

Lunch menu

There are several lunches you can eat at the cafe, but the only thing you can take away is the "Spanish-style omelette croissant sandwich".

There are some lunch foods

There is also bread sold as a bakery.

Bring a warm sandwich and hurry to the park!


My picnic foods

If you walk about 20 minutes from NEIGHBORS BRUNCH, you will find the very beautiful Showa Memorial Park.

The park is very large, with free place and paid places.

There are bread and scones besides croissant sandwich
Picnic lunch

I also enjoyed cinnamon roll and scones together.


There are several stands in the park.
