Getting to Misono Chuo Park from Hamamatsu Station
Misono Chuo Park is located at suburban part of Hamamatsu City near the center of former municipality of Hamakita. The park is excellently designed and managed with children's playground with wide variety of unique playsets including the slide shaped like polyvinyl sewage pipe (possibly recycled). This is the second time visit for me and it seems the park attracts children all year around. The area with cherry blossoms is close to the exit of the station across the railway track.

There are a lot of nice parks for viewing cherry blossoms in Hamamatsu. However most of them are far from the railway stations. Misono Chuo Park is one of the most popular parks in Hamamatsu only a footstep away from the railway station. Misono Chuo Park is adjacent from the railway track and station of Enshu Tetsudo Line, Entetsu Line for short. Start of Entetsu Line, however, is not easily found. First get out from the North Exit (the opposite of Shinkansen Exit) and turn leftward entering the nearby building.
After getting out from North Exit of Hamamatsu Station, turn left and enter the nearby building as the direction board shows.
Shin-Hamamatsu Station of Entetsu Line is located far end of the Entetsu Building.
Shin-Hamamatsu Station of Enshu Tetsudo Line is the start of the railway line bound for Nishi-Kajima Station linking Tenryu Hamanako Line. The destination Misono Chuokoen Station is Station #14. Misono Chuokoen Station is unmanned. When you get off the station you can either give the ticket to the train staff or put it in the box (photo #5). Adjoining the railway track is the park.
