    Shows names and photos and information boards on top of each zone, and a brief description of the zone can be observed individual plants and insects, and is divided into eight large park. Average travel time round the Park 40 minutes or so it seems, but in the morning and afternoon 1 each, exclusive guided garden walk for 90 minutes will be held free of charge. Knowledgeable guide it by plant name I hadn't heard it until the feature from flower and plant episodes comes next and next. And walks to the Park, while plants topic in addition to interesting topics of swamps and Somma could hear a lot of talk. Part of the staff. I think next time I also want to participate in a different season.

    Because there are trees in the park guests can cool even on hot days. Written information, such as a flower can visit to look at the entrance. You can walk to it and you can watch the flowers, such as, along with the name. 1 visit per remember names of two plants that has come. Call my name are the plants learned to go out from the friends feel. A lot of friends here and there.

    This time I went for the first time. The admission will soon, hot. And garden umbrella the umbrella instead. Was going to take a run. Moved to older women than I was, so I'm sorry feeling and thoughtfulness. Admission fees are somewhat higher. Convince upkeep if you think the Park is widely thought. Was very nice, is hot this season are fewer flowers, lush green landscapes, the everyday sunshine is hot, but the wind and cool shade. Just across the fence, nature back to Banzai Vacupor taking pictures while there were. Foreigners so as a Japanese I was very embarrassed. Absolutely not (lol

Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
