  • Many elderly people think of canoeing at the speaking of Sagami Lake, I think. I have changed! Also younger visitors will enjoy fully equipped. All day can enjoy sightseeing in the old arcade or swan boats. In transit towards Yamanashi, but try to come visit. It falls into the nostalgic sense.

  • I went on Saturday and Sunday. Benches, flower beds also restrooms rather nice, in moderation was open shops as well. I was coming to play pretty people of all ages, couples and families with children. Facing or going to play nice, not too crowded, so have your lunch, it seems.

  • Been paid in daytime on weekdays so deserted. Sagami Lake is murky and couldn't see the boat nor the appearance of the boat. It was a hot day.
