Takashi Ryokuchi Park

Toyohashi has some nice parks but Takashi Ryokuchi Park seems to be one of the most popular ones. It is a huge park with nice pine woods. The park also has four playgrounds for children with playsets and a horseback riding club. The park is also home to joggers, pet owners, as well as families with children. It is also a site to see the cherry blossoms and autumn leaves. The park is divided with East Area and West Area. Railway line and route 259 slash this huge park area. It is not easy to move from one part to the other because you will have to cross the railway line and a busy broad road and there are no overpasses linking the two areas. Usually there is no need to go to the west area because East Area alone has a lot to enjoy. It is during cherry season when you will have to move to the west area.

Non Hoi Park and Toyohashi Park

Toyohashi is one of my favorite cities in Aichi Prefecture. It is one of the few Japanese cities where the tramcar runs. It is also a port city where Toyota cars go onboard the ship to various destinations. History fans will love Futagawa area one of the Tokaido lodging stations.

Also see Futagawa travel page.

On Saturday 11th of September I went to Toyohashi Zoo and Botanical Park commonly called Non-Hoi Park. It took more than one hour longer than I expected totalling four hours! Animals in the zoo seemed beaten by recent hot days.
