  • Blue Sky reflected on the surface of the water on a windless sunny day was so beautiful. Seen many foreigners, is relatively near the entrance are frequented by tourists, strolling around the pond in back of air in a quiet, nice atmosphere. Should be noted that only one sign notes to wild animals. It is sitting at close range pond wild boar looking for food. I was thinking and good 出kuwasanakute suddenly saw a brand new sign again.

  • I just like good job separator, so the early in the morning on weekdays, a dog clouds drove down park pond. Parking is on the right side. You could easily Park because it was crowded before. Variety of colours of the foliage that surrounds the pond. Autumn colors reflected on the surface of the water can be enjoyed. For the foreigners who support the Japan Economic Association travel seems to be popular this time of year. There is an exclamation in it seems good to visit early in the morning to enjoy makes proud watching her voice is heard, and a. kikitsu, doing a photo shoot, but a brilliant color.
