The Origin of Asukayama Park

Asukayama Park has its roots in the planting of cherry trees by order of Tokugawa Yoshimune, the 8th Tokugawa Shogun, about 300 years ago during the Edo period (1603-1868), and the opening of the park as a cherry blossom viewing site for the general public.
Asukayama, which was such a historic recreational area, was designated as one of the first parks in Japan, like Ueno Park and Shiba Park in 1873.
