An equestrian park where people and horses meet and interact. With seasonal flowers such as cherry blossoms, the park is also a popular place to relax.
Baji Koen Park, which opened in 1940, is a place where people and horses can interact in an environment full of greenery. It was opened not only as a place to interact with horses but also to provide Tokyo residents with a place to relax. ”En”, a Japanese kanji used in this garden's name, denotes a garden with animals. The park was initially used as a place to train horse-racing jockeys and was famous as a center of equestrianism in Japan. Currently, the park holds a wide variety of events such as horse-friendship events on weekdays, horse shows, and pony racing. Another main attraction is the horse-drawn buggy rides held on the first Thursday of the month, except during the winter. The park is filled with seasonal flowers and plants such as plum and cherry blossoms in the spring, attracting a large number of visitors of all ages.
