Kinuta Park is a large park in Setagaya Ward to the northwest of Yoga Station that is especially well known for its cherry blossoms in spring.

Particular points of interest in the park are a bird sanctuary in the northwest corner of the park, the Setagaya Art Museum (closed until early 2018 for upgrades) and a suspension pedestrian bridge over a tributary of the Tama River which runs through the park.

There are also two small cafes/food outlets within the park that are open from 9am until 5pm daily. The larger location is closed o Monday while the smaller place is closed on Tuesdays.
