Located in the suburb of Yokohama city, Nara is a very peaceful little town.
It takes only half an hour from both central Tokyo and central Yokohama. Still, this area remains a sense of countryside.
If you are a little bit tired of walking in skyscrapers of Tokyo, let’s take a good walk in Nara area.
Don’t forget to prepare for a picnic when you visit this little town!
Because there are plenty of local cozy parks where you can enjoy smooth breeze and scents of flowers.
A king of all the parks locates just in front of Kodomonokuni station; Kodomonokuni.
It is a natural park founded over 50 years ago as a commemoration of the Royal marriage.
Kodomonokuni means “State of kids”. As its name suggests, this park is a great spot to visit if you are with little children.
Especially in the beginning of April. Kodomonokuni is a best-kept secret spot for Ohanami (cherry-blossom viewing).
You can enjoy an array of slightly pinkish Sakura trees even from inside the train.How to access
