Higashi Ojima 

 

Higashi Ojima Station is located in the Ojima district of Koto Ward of Tokyo on the eastern end of Toei Shinjuku Line.

 

Ojima is a relatively quiet residential district of Tokyo rarely visited by tourists. The only place of interest here is the Ojima Komatsugawa Park.

 

Ojima Komatsugawa Park is located 3 minutes on foot from Higashi Ojima Station. Opened in 1997, the Park is mainly a sporting area as practically all sporting facilities are available here athletic fields, baseball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts, etc. This huge park is also meant to be an evacuation facility for residents of the area. Ojima is an area prone to natural disasters like floods and earthquakes, and in case of such an event, local residents can evacuate to this park that can hold over 200,000 people.

 

Besides the sporting facilities, Ojima Komatsugawa Park has large open grassy lawns with many trees. In the middle of the park is Wind Square with the only historical monument of the area the top of the head of Onagigawa Lock. Onagigawa Lock, built in 1926, was one of the many locks in the area built to prevent flooding. After land was reclaimed, the locks were removed in the 1980s. The head of Onagigawa Lock was placed here in the square of Ojima Komatsugawa Park as a reminder and symbol of local history.
