  • It would be nice to know basic mogaki y. Park, but I think to be honest, nothing much to see. If it more than anything else, Samurai fan, take a look at top y. Park takes 38 between total picotee suji Kabuto see keep. That helmet seen in the photo, I saw in the game will be seen. However, guests are prohibited, so watch out. The description of the hotel's free Bota entire guide can ask.
