Takashi Ryokuchi Park is one of the popular parks in Toyohashi and is easily reachable by train. From Hamamatsu Station take Tokaido Line train bound either for Toyohashi, Gifu and Ogaki or beyond and after a half hour train ride transfer the trains to Toyotetsu Atsumi Line. Toyotetsu Shintoyohashi Station is at the east of Tokaido Line Toyohashi Station. Takashi Park is close to Takashi Station the sixth railway station of Atsumi Line from Shintoyohashi.


Takashi Ryokuchi Park is very huge approximately 25 hectres in area and is divided by the railway line. Most of the park visitors go to the eastern larger area of the park where huge lawn areas, children's playground and equestrian ground. The park also has some nice pine groves withstanding repeated gusty winds.
Train stop

Hamamatsu Station

To get to Takashi Ryokuchi Park starting from Hamamatsu Station, you need to get to Toyohashi Station first. I recommend you take Tokaido Line because every train departing from Kudari or down direction (westward from Hamamatsu) stop at Toyohashi. While most of the downward trains are bound for Toyohashi, some go beyond such as Gifu, Ogaki or Maibara. On that day I took train bound for Gifu. Every train either Futsu (Local) or Tokubetsu Kaisoku (Special Rapid Train) also stop at Toyohashi, too.

Toyohashi Station

Toyohashi Station shares a lot of railway lines such as Tokaido Line, Tokaido Shinkansen Line, Meitetsu (Main) Line, Iida Line, Shinai Line (Tram line) and (Toyotetsu) Atsumi Line. To get to Takashi Ryokuchi Park, you may have to walk a bit to find the right station, Shintoyohashi Station of Atsumi Line. It is easy to miss the direction to Atsumi Line. When you get out from the ticket barrier of Tokaido Line, walk toward the East Exit and watch carefully to find the direction sign leading to Atsumi Line.

Children's Playground

When you get to the East Area of Takashi Park you will soon find large children's playground. The park has other children's playground with playing equipment but it seems this area is by far the most often used and the equipment has been properly updated.

Lawn Ground

The park used to be the military training grounds for Japanese Imperial Army until 1945 when Japan lost the second world war. Pine grove has been standing since that time. Lawn grounds are really huge and this area probably is the most popular section of the park.
