Park

Toyama park is home to Hakone Yama, an elevated mound known as the highest summit inside the Yamanote Line circle, and the two surrounding areas split by Meiji Dori into the Hakoneyama and Okubo grounds.
While the summit at Hakoneyama stands at a mere 44.6 meters tall, it is still the tallest elevation within the Yamanote Line circle, offering a wide view of the Shinjuku skyline.
The peak is home to many Somei Yoshino cherry trees, whose blooms draw crowds for a glimpse of their cherryblossoms in spring.
Inside the Okubo grounds you can also find the Shinjuku Sports Center, grass fields and open space for recreation.

    白天附近的居民在此活動的人還算蠻多的,隨著步道慢慢走上去爬上幾個階梯就可以就可以到達平台,在這邊可以看到新宿地區高聳的摩天大樓,翠綠的植物感覺很舒服。
    不過傳說中這個地方以前死了很多人這也是日本傳聞中第一名「靈異地點」,趕緊拍的幾張照片後就逃之夭夭了
