  • See this handy google reviews, Word of mouth, I visited the Suma Rikyu Park. Road is located just south of Rikyu Palace Road pine tree has been planted (one lane road, below the picture) straight down to the South and the SANYO Electric railway crossing over the railway crossing and road junction (intersection of the Royal visit, 4) left a seven-Eleven convenience stores (image below). It is about 10 minutes walk 5 minutes by car from Villa Park. I think that maybe here is the nearest from the shugakuin Imperial Villa Park a handy convenience store. However when entering the shugakuin Imperial Villa Park leaving once, and also, if you found something, before entering the Palace park so I think money should take a look at available here from Let's go! ♪ (useful information)
