  • Weekend events for doing something impression. In the mind of the Morioka municipal park treatment just will. Isn't it about the word "Castle", and they compared to Castle and ruins of other tourist destinations tourists? So disappointing considered a tourist destination, is disturbing. Nothing special looking ones are not! That appeal is needed I think. It is a natural park can be found the walls.
