  • We love going to the square and having a wander, This clock tower with the lights and sometimes gentle music is always great. Very hypnotic. 
  • The Clock tower was worth seeing and lit up at night, also lovely flowers in the Square garden. It was also a good land mark in the square to find our way home. 
  • It is recommended gakarimashita happened as follows on the back of the restaurant, daytime is taking pictures. I thought floor in Rainbow lit up at night, without a rainbow 2 or 3 color better.
