  • Sankyo Soko's autumn is especially quaint. Bride's wedding photography. I recommend especially the money or not, so to go around outside enjoying the view.

  • From Sakata station went free rental bicycles. Location from Station 15 minutes road once curved just so consistently. Landscape warehouse are nice and zelkova is a nice view from the tree also seen from the opposite bank of the river. Restaurant and souvenir shop is at the parking lot near the warehouse, in the back as the warehouse are actually using will, I was able to see where exactly from the warehouse carrying luggage on the track.

  • Is the place you want pictures to take in every season and taste. It is good to see free of artefacts, the Museum offers flower, rich in souvenirs. Where the parking lot is always crowded, narrow parking lot for tourist attractions. Zelkova serrata tree-lined entrance to parking and smoking, although this too narrow.
