  • Is the Botanic gardens can learn more exploring the footsteps of herbalist Dr. Makino vegetation in Japan and were very helpful. We went to the botanical gardens of various, as my personal impression is most beautiful botanical garden. Can you feel interesting and even not so much interested in plants, this botanical garden, surrounding isn't it. Located on Mount Wutai, nice views, bamboo Temple close to the recommended tourist routes.

  • Rich in plant species, it is easy to see. Was at the scheduled time, that is, sat, Sun, holidays 10:30-, 13:30-and as you can around while listening to explanations of how to guide. Also when I visited stamp rally overall balance, like we were. Free stamp book design is good, so very good to own a souvenir. More on did you know but there is a video about the life of Dr. Makino, no prior knowledge of history and background, able to turn an interest. Off harmony and the Botanical Garden and surrounding landscape design wooden buildings in a very sophisticated, very helpful. Also find such trees and tree planting from many different countries and cities in the park so it was fun.

  • Orchids in the greenhouse mass with fine facilities include a sophisticated, was. Without much with others because it was early spring, so the wide park of ordinary. Moving is hard because there is a difference between the high and low, the companions had hurt his ankle. More on the tour so I don't have time to have 15 minute description of the person in charge at the entrance. Thanks to the 見renakatta half. Map description also inside the garden where there is hard to find. Wish I had something mark will change the color of the road. We see that description was located where? "And listen to stroll in the Park, said 'I don't know' answers together. Disappointed no creatures in the pond. Facilities not feel worth in at somber, see also chirahora. It was a facility to pay a park officials felt. Ashikaga flower park was best, where with this hand if I have ever been.
