  • 我去的時候是閒日,公園的紅葉又只有少數轉了色,遊客比較少。公園的氣氛優閒,令人可以放鬆一下,有時間可以到這裡走走。 
  • Provided to the Kobe City was originally the Park agency having jurisdiction over the Board. Continues the rectangular pond in the Middle landscape, overlooking the mansion-style Cafe (restaurant) from European-style gardening, spouting fountains of triangle in the middle. From there, quickly (* train is no longer visible) on the coast, overlooking the landscape of 瀬月内. Of the nation is sung during the Heian period and the tale of Genji is the Suma coast

  • It is a very beautiful park. For families with children is where the picnic is partly and painting competitions are also commonly used. See also sea, plenty of greenery on a hill so that area.

  • 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.
