  • Winter Park is quiet. Leave your car in the Park on weekdays, take a walk to the front of the station. Is for weekends and holidays are prefectural gymnasium competition often is held in the parking lot from early morning until the evening is full. Note that traffic is very heavy. Higashi OTE gate new gates are made of. Snowy winter landscapes are at their best. Last got a Pokemon Go! seems to occur.

  • As the original mountain-shaped city has been lost in the history of the flood, the current large hand is the cost of the renovation. During the winter visits, the snow and the city doors matched, very beautiful. At present, this pill seems to be the same in the restoration of the original repair, look forward to the future can see the more beautiful Chevron City. The most historical museum, which is also free to visit the big hand, can fill up the historical history of the city.

  • This place is so special. Not sure if it's worth it as a tourist destination. This park is a part of a lot of people's commute and walking here around sunset is an enjoyable way to experience a slice of local life. During the day there is a woman who practices flute by the castle. If you are there at the right season, you can observe some outrageous crow roosting behavior. During the summer they have "Radio Taiso" at 6:30AM throughout the park. I hear the cherry blossoms are stunning in the Spring! Oh, almost forgot to mention the beautifully creepy medical museum.
  • Every nearby museums and stores were close during new year (of course), but this castle gate still opened to let people walk through inside park with man-on-the-horse statue. Even there was no any other beautiful castle of building (except the old nearby tower-like museum, but it was close also), the view of completely white snow field with many dry big sakura tree was so serene and relax for me, especially the old black white stray cat of the park who liked to sunbath and dressing itself on the park bench, and very friendly to people. She let me played with her all the time, even I left, she still followed (and when other people came, she followed and requested them to cuddle too) So cute!
  • Good family outing
  • Quiet and clean park!
  • A nice park especially in cherry blossom season
