Asukayama Park is the first park in Japan.
Asukayama Park is the first park in Japan. It has about 650 sakura trees, planted by the Japanese political leader Yoshimune Tokugawa (1684-1751). People drink and eat under them when the cherry blossoms bloom in spring. There are also some museums in the park. The paper museum shows the history of paper and has a library. The Shibusawa museum is about the famous Japanese industrialist Eiich Shibusawa (1840-1931), who played an important role in the development of Japan.
