Machida Yakushi-ike Park Shikisainomori Yakushi-ike

This park is emblematic of Machida and has been selected as one of the New Tokyo 100 Views, Tokyo Metropolitan Designated Scenic Spots, and 100 Historic Parks in Japan.
The area around Taiko Bridge in Yakushiike Park is a relaxing spot where visitors can enjoy flowers in each of the four seasons—plum and cherry blossoms in spring, irises and lotus flowers in summer, and the colorful leaves of ginkgo and maple trees in the fall.
