Time Out says
First-time visitors are often surprised to discover this verdant expanse of lush grass in Setagaya Ward. Kinuta Park actually used to be a municipal golf course, though you no longer need to worry about getting hit by flying balls while you're having your weekend picnic. An especially popular place for family outings, attractions within the park include a cycling course, bird sanctuary and kids' playground, as well as the Setagaya Art Museum. It's also a draw for springtime sakura viewers, when the variety of species guarantees a longer bloom time.
