Calm ambience, green all over and more importantly lake and boating will make you feel good. Boating charges are somewhat a function of your weight, better reduce :)

The main attraction was the cherry blossom. The lake is quite picturesque. There is nothing much to do here. One can take a walk around the park and click photos with cherry blossoms in the background. There is boating facility as well.

A beautiful lake amidst the city. A good place for photoshoots also. There are ducks in the lake. So you can play with them if you have got pop corns. Boating can also be done there.
