Tis park is ideal for families and children especially. You need to transit it on the way to the rope-way. I'm sure it is lively in the summer-time. Kids must have been school for there wasn't much activity. Well groomed.

A relative small and quiet park. Nothing much to do or see but it is a good place to rest and have a picnic.

The bridge leads over to this park. It is a modern park, and is good for walking around, enjoying the weather and greenery. Some parts afford a good view of the hilltop castle.

We had already seen a few parks in Japan and this one was a bit of a letdown as the upkeep could have been better.

Come during the spring and bring your camera. When the Ume and Sakura are in bloom it is so beautiful. The fall you get the Iris. Come early in the morning on a humid day and see what little creatures are waiting to smile in...More

Park is large and nice to walk around. It doesn't explicitly forbid bringing dogs and I saw a few locals walking around dogs, so dogs must be allowed. The Shinto temple is a nice garden, and for some reason, I like to pay a visit...More
