If you are looking for a safe and clean green space for the kids to run and you to enjoy a coffee while sitting down, we recommend SOLOS Park. So times it is just too hot to run after little ones. Also if you are a gardener, the SOLOS nursery is a must-visit for both house plants, outdoor greenery, pots, and gardening equipment.
SOLOS Park, Minami Azabu – Tokyo Green Space, Coffee, and Plant Nursery
Once you enter the park your kids can run around, ride a scooter, or play ball on the green. There are shaded sitting areas that are perfect for grabbing a coffee or light snack at the cafe and reading while your kid play. The cafe does occasional tie-ups with restaurants so the menu changes with the partner. Also free wifi from inside the cafe.
The SOLOS nursery is probably the best plant nursery I have found in Tokyo. Great selection seedlings to full-size trees if you have a large yard or veranda. They also have an impressive selection of pots for plants of all sizes.
A great place to spend an hour with friends. Very kid-friendly.
