Tsurumai Koen

Sorry for the gap in posts. We have been super busy!

On our anniversary (way back on May 18th!) we went to Tsurumai Park. It’s a very easy park for us to get to, because it’s on our subway line. So we just can get on, go for 8 stops, and we’re there!

Tsurumai Park is pretty old, and even used to have a zoo. Now it is famous for its flowers. It has many different seasonal flowers, like cherry blossoms, roses, and hydrangeas. When we went, the roses were in full bloom.


Near exit 4 of the Tsurumai subway station, there is a beautiful fountain.


The ducks loved the fountain.

There were hundreds of varieties of roses at the park.

Tsuru-mai (鶴舞) means “crane dance”.

So, there were crane statues around the lake.

I’m not sure if this is a regular thing, or if it was something special, but when we were there, there were TONS of cosplayers all over the park.

After the cosplayers, we engaged in a cat rescue mission, after which, we ate yummy bread at the nearby mall.


We had a berry and cream cheese bagel with a garlic baguette. They were yummy.

My next post will be about the Thai Festival!
