  • Beautiful flower garden of "patchwork" is in "Park" a flat perspective, if seen from above, European style of gardening. Is rectangular in shape, to the direction of the sea pool pond is organized is a fountain in the Middle, has spouted. Has become the structure of the stairs has become a coffee shop in the building, but see the sea from there.

  • Seasonal flowers and fountain garden is beautiful, but I recommend athletics. There are all kinds of things, take 1st 30 minutes. Long slide, it is so much fun. Recommended for families with children.

  • I went to see the autumn leaves lighted up. You can stay and watch and not crowded like the Kyoto. And solid foliage so when there will be the light was quite beautiful. Walking in the park with kickin' fun, watching the leaves turn.

  • Fountain is good during the day, lit up at night. Also recommended for dating. Place to dine is this garden, Botanical Garden not only 1 point each. With confidence because most are crowded enough cars in the parking lot, but there are no spaces, not simply the admission of bad for hitch. Will take time 1 minute forever even though more than one venue should not accept only one at a time, so one car. This is where I want to improve.

  • Buy annual passes (900 yen) and otherwise the Suma Rikyu Park forest park, phase easy turn on the garden. Landscape view upon the seasons change, so will want to come again. In a park in scary water slides and slides of the rumors. Please please be careful.

  • I wonder if good athletics on elementary school. Adults were with children even play without problems. Is good public facilities, so cheaper admission or parking fee ❗
