    Bon went to sleep. We could somehow go because the parking lot was filling up, but tend to come and go. So he could park in the Rokko mountains located, available, and Botanical Garden parking lot parking ticket and parking is 500 Yen one day lose don't let. Souvenir, or on the garden terrace, restaurant and grocery store. The view from the deck of the vantage point is the best! Summer is cool at 25 ° C temperature. I think the place perfect for the summer.
