This is a nice stroll along the canal with a few sculptures and a line of trees. Benches in one place or two to rest your legs and just soak up the nice atmosphere in the middle of a nice city

Our hotel was next to the canal so we could watch it from our room. It’s not just a canal but nicely maintained and they made a very nice path along it where you can easily spend some time walking, sitting and watch the people...More

While walking around the train station area, I picked up some rice ball snacks and a drink and ate it along this park. It was late lunch hour and other people were eating their snacks as well. Nicely laid out landscaped stream. Great place for...More

About 10 minutes walk from where we were staying at Hotel Granvia at Okayama. The soothing greenery, the flora fauna, the wooden walkways make for a relaxing walk provided the sun plays hide & seek. Dotted with benches & culverts, small bridges over clear waters...More

Wonderful to walk here, lot of places to sit, and you don't feel you are in the middle of a big and busy town. To be here in the high of the Sekura season made it perfect

A great idea--create a park along a portion of a steam running through the heart of the city. Makes for a very pleasant stroll either early in the day before things open, or in the late afternoon before heading to drinks/dinner.

The Canal was a nice walk during the day. The trees give much needed shade during the hot day. The view is beautiful. I was lucky enough to be pulled into a Tai Chi session. HOWEVER.... Do NOT go through the canal after dark. I...More

I am not sure about the park, I suppose the whole area is considered a park? However, Walking along the canal "river" is nice. Best place to start is from Momotorodori, 5 mins from Okayama station. There are some bronze and stone statues along the...More
