Kitamoto Children's park cherry blossoms

Kitamotoshi Kodomo Park 2012 to 2020! Kitamotoshi Kodomo Park is called Kitamoto Children’s Park in English. When I first wrote this blog post in 2012 I only had two children and they were both toddlers. Fast forward eight years and I now have four children aged between 5 and 10 years old. And we still visit this park from time to time. It is still enjoyable for their age group. Particularly as we can now combine it with a trip to the neighboring Kitamoto Nature Park and nature study center. The famous Jougaya cherry blossoms are close by too, within walking distance if you have older children.

Kitamoto Children’s Park

From 2012 and still stands true today (2020):

My favourite park / playground (2012) to bring my toddlers to in the Hiki District of Saitama is Kitamoto Children’s Park.  I love it,  because it has something for children of all ages.   I like that, in the summer, the playground suited to small children is in the shade and they have a wading river to cool down in. In the winter, they have an indoor playroom for babies and toddlers. Spring brings the stunning sakura and it is a great place for hanami. They fly carp for children’s day during the cherry blossom season up to Golden Week.

The park is particularly picturesque in spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. It is a great park for hanami with children. They have several events throughout the year. Its an all round fun park for families with small children.
