  • And is about 10 minutes walk from Dogo Onsen Honkan. It is just nice to walk away. Originally "Japan 100 meijo" out I've had visited the "Water Castle" (mark). Admission free of charge. Water Castle Museum, the park entrance on your right (stamps are here), the study of this castle. Understand video history of castle building but has parks such as earthworks, since the northern and Southern dynasties to the warring States period and Kono, flourished as a centre but can see it easier. Now, go out and watch earthworks such as venturing into the Park well-maintained Park is good, enjoyed the walk from their parents. Cherry Blossom time is exceptional. Parking there. Right in front of the Iyo railway jonan line Dogo Park is a park.

  • A great park close to Dogo Onsen. It has a. It of history, good open spots, a playground for kids, a moat with koi and turtles, and a fair amount of trails. Good for all seasons!
  • It's a nice little park with a fair bit of history. Good for pilgrims to unwind.
  • Standard park, not too much to see.

  • In some older memories went to the Zoo Park. Water fortification is now maintained as a pilgrimage, free and open. Green lot, walk up. Children's Park and playground equipment are in families with children popular. Spring is the blossom.
