It's a wonderful place. During the rainy season it's quite busy with the hydrangea festival, but usually it is a quiet place. Well suited for a picnic, the nature is beautiful and it is a bit hidden so it is mainly popular among locals.

It is a beautiful park. When the ajisai are in full bloom in mid June, it is spectacular.
