Hamanako Garden Park | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Hamamatsu Station 

[Hamanako Garden Park]

An oasis full of seasonal flowers

Hamanako Garden Park was built on the site of the 2004 Pacific Flora Garden Exposition and the 21st Japan Urban Greenery Shizuoka Festival. The park comprises three areas: Nishigawa Area (with spacious open lawns), Machi no Area (with a children's playground and observation tower), and Sato no Area (with beautiful flowers, trees, and gardens). On a fine day, the 50-meter observation tower commands a panoramic view of the vast park and Lake Hamana, and the pleasure boats that cruise along the waterway that stretches east to west offer beautiful views from on board. Hands-on workshops are held on weekends to give visitors an opportunity to learn about and get closer to nature.
