  • Is a park and escape the hustle and bustle of the city to see picnics and flowers away from the downtown area, but slowly. SANYO Electric Railway runs through the room.

  • I went and said in a quiet, relaxing place to go. Entrance fee was 400 yen per person. In the Park is very large, very slowly. There were a lot of families are eating lunch, and are often fitted with bench. Beautiful roses with foliage. And the people who wanted relax, away from the hustle and bustle is very recommended.

  • I went to 11/23. Leaves just the right time we slowly watch Park. Beautiful foliage in the Botanical Garden, Park roses and other flowers bloomed beautifully. Also in the Park nice Western style buildings and gardens. Admission: 400 Yen for adults and affordable, JAF and co-op member discounts are also available. You're going to watch the autumn Park side parking lot has a parking lot, but botanical reservation system parking is recommended. I think both were parking fee is ¥ 500. Will come again is go.

  • 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 ❗
