    どんなどころか何も知らずに展望台の名前だけ見つけて行きました。ここより奥の丘の方が小高く、展望台らしくありません。低い方も木が邪魔してあまり見えません。ただ、展望はきかなくても、ひっそりとした良いところでした。

    ここは、盛岡市街でも北上川の水運に関係した河岸があった地域。かつての酒蔵等を利用した商業施設です。 見張り台も備えた建物自体のレトロな雰囲気に、中に入ったお店の本格的な昭和スタイルにはちょっとうっとり。もっと知られていい施設だと思います。

    Tokyo Edogawa-ku Chuo 4-14-1

    JR総武線の新小岩駅南口から徒歩15分ほどですが、駅から歩くと、ちょっとわかりにくい場所です。大ホールで観劇しましたが、女性用トイレが観客数に比べ少ないのは仕方ないのかな。ロビーにはソファーも多く、テーブルとイスもあるので、休憩時間に持ち込みの飲食をするのには困りません。裏にある親水公園がホットします。
