Minoyama Koen Park of Saitama prefecture is a national park that sprawls across the stunning Mt. Minoyama. Best seen during cherry blossom season (Check before you travel, it changes annually dependent on weather), you will have an opportunity to climb the natural park through the hillside of stunning cherry blossoms in bloom. Admission is free and you're free to explore all of the paths at your leisure, but note that the mountain is not lit at nighttime. So, while the view may be beautiful in the evening, bring your own light source to avoid being trapped on a mountain in the dark.
The park is on the top of the mountain, and there are no outdoor lights, trash cans, and dining facilities.
Please put on warm clothes and bring a flashlight, especially if you want to see the sea of clouds and the view at night.
We also ask you NOT to use instruments that make fires, including smoking, and take your garbage home.
