Musashinomori Park is a metropolitan park developed on the former site of the Chofu Airport, which was fully returned by the U.S. military.

Grassy plaza at Musashinomori Park

Musashinomori Park is divided into a north area and a south area. The north area includes a grassy plaza and a hill overlooking the adjacent Chofu Airport.
And the south area includes a soccer field, baseball field, and tennis courts.

From the north area of Musashinomori Park, visitors can watch aircrafts take off and land at close range, and a bunker used to protect fighter planes during World War II still remains.

Commonly referred to as Chofu Airport, its official name is “Tokyo Metropolitan Chofu Airport”.
The runway is 800 meters long and is used exclusively for small aircraft.

Currently, Chofu Airport operates flights to Oshima, Niijima, Kozushima, and Miyakejima in the Izu Islands, which are part of the Tokyo’s island chain.

Construction of Chofu Airport began in 1939 and was completed in 1941, and was a public airfield with two runways at the time.
During World War II, it was mainly used by the Japanese Army as a base for the defense of the capital, and after the war it was temporarily occupied by the U.S. Army.
