[Kanto Touring Spot] [Tokyo] Bike trip to Wakasu Seaside Park! A solo trip on a Harley to a scenic spot overlooking Tokyo

Hello, this is _hiroyuki.ta.

This time, I toured on a Harley from a friend’s house in Ageo City, Saitama Prefecture to Wakasu Seaside Park in Koto Ward, Tokyo.

Wakasu Seaside Park is a marine park facing Tokyo Bay, and includes a golf course, yacht training school, sea fishing facilities, and cycling roads. You can also enjoy spectacular views of Tokyo Gate Bridge and Mt. Fuji. This time I would like to introduce its charm.


Route to Wakasu Seaside Park

It was around 10am when we left a friend’s house in Ageo City, Saitama Prefecture. From National Route 17 and the Shin-Omiya Bypass, I entered Saitama Prefectural Route 124 at 3-chome, Saitama City, and took the Metropolitan Expressway No. 5 Ikebukuro Line and Shuto Expressway No. 9 Fukagawa Line to the Bayside Road in Koto Ward No. 5. I exited the Shuto Expressway Wangan Line at Shinkiba and proceeded on the Shinkiba Wakasu Line to my destination in Wakasu. It took about 1 hour.

On the way, as I always do, I was excited by the sights of the Tokyo Gate Bridge and Sky Tree visible from the Shuto Expressway. The Tokyo Bay coast is undergoing development and there are many modern buildings and bridges, but nature still remains, and the blue sea and sky are beautiful. It feels great to ride while feeling the sound of the Harley engine and the wind.

Highlights of Wakasu Seaside Park

We arrived at Wakasu Seaside Park around 11:30am. There is a golf course called Wakasu Golf Links and a sailing school called Wakasu Yacht Training School within the park.

The sea fishing facility is an artificial breakwater that can be used free of charge, but guests must bring their own fishing rods and bait. I wasn’t planning on fishing, so I was just watching the anglers, and there were quite a few of them, so it looked interesting. The fish you can catch include horse mackerel, sardines, and rockfish. However, it was relaxing to fish while feeling the sea breeze, and I was able to make friends with the anglers.

The cycling road is a well-maintained road that allows you to go around the park, and there are bicycles available for rent. From the cycling road, we could enjoy not only the seaside scenery, but also views of Tokyo Disney Resort, Kasai Rinkai Park, the Boso Peninsula, and Mt. Fuji in the distance. In particular, the Tokyo Gate Bridge, which can be seen directly from the sea fishing facility, is dynamic and cool. The illuminated night view is also beautiful.

Wakasu Seaside Park parking lot


Wakasu Seaside Park has two parking lots: Wakasu Seaside Park Parking Lot and Koto Ward Wakasu Park Parking Lot. I used the Wakasu Seaside Park parking lot. Usage hours are from 6:00 to 22:00, and entry is until 20:30. Closed on Tuesdays except the third Tuesday of the month. Bikes can be used free of charge. Vehicles other than cars and motorcycles are not allowed. There are 322 vehicles, and those with a disability certificate are exempt from the fee.

The Koto Ward Wakasu Park parking lot is close to the campground, multipurpose plaza, sea fishing facility, and cycling path. It is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The fare is 500 yen for a regular car and 2000 yen for a large car. Although payment is required in advance, those with a disability certificate will be exempted from the fee. There are 492 regular cars and 6 large cars. Please note that the parking lot is often full in the morning on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

This time, I toured on a Harley from Ageo City, Saitama Prefecture to Wakasu Seaside Park. Wakasu Seaside Park is a marine park facing Tokyo Bay, where you can enjoy various leisure activities such as golf, sailing, fishing, and cycling. You can also see spectacular views of Tokyo Gate Bridge and Mt. Fuji. Riding a Harley feels good, but riding a bicycle is also refreshing. It’s close to the city center and has good access, so I think it’s an easy touring spot. We will bring you another wonderful touring report next time, so please look forward to it!
