    Aichi Yatomi-shi Uenocho 2-10

    お散歩するような大きな公園を探してここへ行きました。 観察メインの公園なので、立ち入れる場所は少なくお散歩には向かないなと思います。 事務所のような建物があり、その二階から水辺にいる鳥を望遠鏡で観察することができます。無料なので気軽に立ち寄れます。 鳥にさほど興味がなくても、意外に面白かったです。

Aichi Areas


Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
