  • 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.

  • The small duck boat. We were very close to 1 hour milling around was. Got muddy water, you can't see the bottom. Nostalgic retro feeling is just an old game and I try. Tanabata decorations.
