To pay the entrance fee at the right side entering the front gate and broad "wagon road" and gradually brighter around the, and appears in Park classic 'Fountain Square'. Fountain Square is deployed from mountain view toward the sea of a rectangle to square, doubles as the "rose garden" at the same time. You can enjoy the spectacle rose flowers is also something different. Guests can dine and rest on the mountain side of Fountain Square, solid and feel free to enjoy from a cup of coffee. Kobe souvenirs can be purchased. Behind the rest house is a "children's forest". Athletic fields and the children are bored. Designed and equipped.

  • 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.

  • 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.
