Higashi-Yamato Minami Park is a large park with greenery and sports facilities. One interesting edifice is the former Hitachi Aircraft Transformer Substation pockmarked with bullet holes from World War II.

The park was formerly the US Air Force's Yamato Air Station. Before that from 1938 and during World War II, it was the site of a military aircraft engine factory. Near Tamagawa Josui Station on the Seibu Haijima Line.
