  • Now cherry blossoms are at their best. It is also observed every year is very interesting. 1-if you have time go by car, buying lunch, Lawson, cozy in a shady and quiet cabin. Flowering garden throughout the year or something and can be enjoyed.

  • After the kisaichi hiking went!! Botanical Garden maintained by the University, season pattern autumn season? But I thought a little earlier this year, Park was stark. Come and once people have an interest in the plant is what?

  • It is a wonderful Botanical Garden integrated in nature, and tap into the natural terrain. Kisaichi station, bring lunch and picnic to narcissism. It is off the beaten path of nature.
