Review of Tomitaro Makino Kinenkan

牧野富太郎の一生が様々な展示で表現されています。時に、植物学者としての心得を書いた書物は、どんな人にも当てはまる内容になっており心に響きました。展示はとても充実しているので、時間に余裕をもっていくことをお勧めします。
Reviewed:2019/02/18 森の中にある植物園
かなり規模の大きな植物園で、1日過ごせます。
当日は駆け足での訪問でしたが、まさに楽園という感じの施設です。家族連れでイベントは混んでいましたが、敷地が広大でゆっくり回れました。車でのアクセスは五台山の入口が分かりにくくちょっと迷いました。植物園の入口は竹林寺の参道のすぐそばです。

丁寧に植物の世話がされていて、植物に対する愛情が感じられます。場所もきれいで、癒やしのスペースになっています。

          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
