Rinshi No Mori ParkFree: All time

What is formerly a forest nursery and research station, Rinshi No Mori Park boasts a handsome crop of trees. The shades provided by the trees here makes the park the perfect place to hide out during Tokyo’s unbearably humid summer. With the hundred-year-old trees, Rinshi No Mori Park is lush, cool and quiet. There’s also a splashing pond to cool off in. Be sure to put on some mosquitoes repellent as they’re abundant and are most certain to be out and about during dusk.
