Trees of Tsujido Seaside Park

Near the beach in Fujisawa is a very large park called Tsujido Kaihin Koen (or Tsujido Seaside Park).  It’s used for many things, including sports, festivals, relaxing, and there’s even a small amusement park.  These pictures mostly show the trees of the park, including a pond area.  Enjoy!

Palm trees are everywhere in this park. It seems so tropical.

Parks in Japan typically include a pond.

The Japanese black pine is a popular tree for bonsai, but you can find them everywhere along the coast in Japan.

This grove of Japanese black pines shows how twisted their trunks are.

The trees tend to bend in one direction, the way the wind blows.

The pond contains numerous turtles, including this one.

Looking back toward the pond through some Japanese black pine trees.

This is only a small area of the park, and I have taken pictures of elsewhere before.  I will post them in the future.

After leaving the park, we went down to the beach.  My next set of photos will be of the beach!  There were some great waves.

Here’s a view of the park from above.  We were in the central part.

    I bet some of those Japanese black pine trees make good climbing trees! My kids would LOVE to give those a try!! I think palm trees are so pretty. 🙂
