  • Walking in kisaichi station on the Keihan Hirakata-Shi station change to the katano line. A scientific approach in ecological studies of plants and collection. In fact in good weather, people outside the University and published as a nature Learning Center, suitable for walking. Is a place where you can enjoy the weather if you're around people who spent a day.
