One of them is Mitsuike-koen in Yokohama, literally “Three Ponds Park”, with its three man-made ponds surrounded by about 1,600 cherry trees.

It’s a public park that’s filled daily with families, senior citizens, joggers/runners, dog-walkers, you name it.

When Spring comes and the cherry trees start to bloom it becomes one of the favorite places in Yokohama for cherry blossom viewing.
When it’s nice and sunny and there is only a gentle wind, the park is just perfect. Birds fly over the ponds.

When you enter the park grounds, the beautiful mix of white, pink and a hint of green colours will enticed you. The park main features are the ponds populated by huge carp and the weeping pink cherry tree located at the northeast portion of the park.
