Shiokaze Park

Shiokaze Park

A predecessor of Shiokaze Park was Landfill No. 13 park, created on one plot of Landfill No. 13 based on the Tokyo Bay First Revision Plan. Later, when this area and the surrounding area were being converted into Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center, from 1992 to 1996, full-scale improvement work transformed it into Shiokaze Park.
The largest park in Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center, it has facilities suited to the seashore and a park and is located adjacent to Odaiba Kaihin Park. And from the park, you can gaze upon the beautiful scenery of Tokyo Bay with the Rainbow Bridge in the background.
It is expected to take on the function of the central park of the developing Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center.

Highlights

Notice:

Shiokaze Park is divided into north and south parts by the Bayshore Route (Shuto Kosoku Wangan Sen), and because of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and deterioration, the bridge has been removed. So we ask that you take an alternative route when traveling to the northeast area.

More on the alternative route here. mapPark map
