It is also a great place during the full bloom of cherry trees. In summer, you can enjoy the green and clean surroundings but the temperature could rise up to 30 degrees Celsius. Some people find it too humid to go to any gardens in summer but for garden lovers, this is still a good place to stroll any time of the year. In winter, the weather could get bitter since you have to stay out for at least 45 minutes to stroll around the park. Just like any other parks and gardens, trees are bare.
