  • It's a nice little park with a fair bit of history. Good for pilgrims to unwind.
  • Standard park, not too much to see.
  • Samurai House in the castle ruins. Precious is double, as well as at the time of the bunker has been preserved. We hope that further excavation of the remains.

  • 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.
