Okazaki-City Higashi Park and Mini Zoo (Higashi Koen)
An expansive green area in Okazaki City, about 3km east from Higashi-Okazaki Station of the Meitetsu Nagoya Main Line. Besides the brimming nature of the place, it is surrounded by museums and other cultural facilities. Inside the park, the free-admission Mini-Zoo will appeal to families with kids. With cherry blossoms in early spring, irises in early summer, and vibrant maple leaves in autumn, the park has beautiful color and lots to see throughout the year.
