Yakushi-ike Park (Shikisai no Mori) is a medium-sized park filled with seasonal flowers. Inside the park, you can find historic buildings such as the former Nagai family residence and the Ogino family residence. Enjoy a walk around the central Yakushi Pond, spanned by the Taiko Bridge. Over the hill towards the southern edge of the park, you can find the modern Shikisai no Mori Western Garden with its 44APARTMENT grilled cuisine restaurant and nearby farmer's market. It's also just across the road from the another family favorite, the Machida Squirrel Garden (10am–4pm, closed Tues).
The park is about an hour’s walk from the main Machida station, or you can catch a taxi for a 15-minute ride (approximately ¥2000, depending on traffic). A bus can also be taken close by: go to bus stop #21 in front of the Pop Building, where you’ll see a Lawson supermarket directly in front of you. Take the J55 and disembark at "Yakushi-ike". You’ll see the yellow squirrel garden gate in the distance, and traffic lights just ahead.
