Toyama Park is a large park with lots of mature trees in Shinjuku Ward that is just a short walk from the main campus of Waseda University.
Because of its proximity to the university, it’s a popular spot for students to practice sports or just hang out.
At the center of the park is “Hakone-yama”. At a height of 44.6 meters above sea level, Hakone-yama is the highest geographical point within Tokyo’s circular Yamanote Line. The summit is surrounded by trees, so there’s really only a partial view of the surroundings when the trees are devoid of leaves in winter.
Once a year, the park is a venue for yabusame—a form of traditional archery with archers shooting at a target while riding a galloping horse.
