 入間方向から、荒川土手沿いをサイクリングしていると丁度休憩しやすい場所にあります。牧草に寝そべりながら、アイスクリームを頬張りながら…最高の一休みです。因みに、今度は孫を連れてアイスクリームと小動物、子供用の乗り物とかですかね。

The Railway Museum

The Railway Museum was built in Onari, Saitama City as the centerpiece of the JR East 20th Anniversary Memorial Project. This is a railway museum, and it preserves both the physical elements and heritage of Railways in Japan and abroad. It also preserves materials relating to JR East and the JNR privatization reforms. The Railway Museum also conducts research and development. This is a historical museum that tells the industrial history of the development of the railway system while introducing the historical background of each period with displays of actual models. It is also an educational museum. Children can learn about and experience railway principles, systems, and the latest technologies (including future plans) through models, simulations, and play equipment.

Nice train models from different historical periods. Also interesting for a foreigner is to observe the infatuation of Japanese toward railway system and trains. Avoid the crowd and visit only at off peak days. Food tend to be a little expensive. Parking fine but needs to walk a bit.
DON'T MISS OUT the miniature railway show. The best attraction of this museum. It was a new addition just completed in July 2017. Well worth your time!

埼玉県で県内最大のバラ園と 伊奈町のホームページに記載されたので 2014バラまつりの初日である5月10日に訪問しました。 日々のバラ開花状況は伊奈町ホームページに掲載されているので 訪問計画ある方は 閲覧される事 お薦めします。 又 大宮駅から電車で訪問予定の方は バラ園入場券付フリーきっぷ770円がある事 ご存知でしょうか、大宮駅~内宿駅350円x2+入場券200円と比較すると非常にお得です。 一方でバラ園そのものは 悪くはないのですが、 リピータとして訪れるには 少々 バラ園のレイアウトが平坦のように感じ、 もう少しバラの見え方を工夫すれば もっとこの伊奈町を中心として 東京からの訪問客を増やす事が出来るのにな~と思いました。 是非 来年は バラ園内の通路からの見え方に 遠くからの全体で見た色バランス、近くからの彩りなどが美しく変化し、より進化したバラ園となり リピータになりたくなる一工夫を期待しています。

Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama

Reviewed By Prepcook - Fussa, Japan

This small museum is best reached by train as it is only a five minute walk from the nearest station. Admission is low but you absolutely get a huge return in terms of quality.
There are a combination of indoor/outdoor exhibits so plan to go on a clear day. The venue was crowded on the weekend so perhaps a week day visit would be more relaxing.
There is a small café on the second floor which gives an excellent overview of the outdoor layout. The café is only for drinks and snacks, no meals are served but there is a tea house with a light lunch menu quite nearby.
The trees themselves are gorgeous and range in age from relatively young to ancient.
There are ample notations in English and even a bilingual book available for a very small fee. Photos are allowed ONLY in designated areas, people tend not to notice or pay attention to the signs. It is always best to remember that you are a guest of the museum and respect for the signs is a part of that. Young children may not be the ideal guests without close supervision as they may want to touch the trees or pull off flowers so parents use discretion please. Older kids may really enjoy the periodic workshops held to start their own bonsai. Demonstrations are also given in the care of the trees.
The location is excellent because it is in a neighborhood originally dedicated to Bonsai gardeners and some of these Gardens still exist.

Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Shrine

Reviewed By みみずくパパ - 越谷市

Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Shrine (武蔵一宮氷川神社, Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Jinja) is a popular shrine in Saitama City, a 20-30 minute walk from Omiya Station. As its name suggests ("Musashi Ichinomiya" literally means "top shrine of Musashi"), this shrine used to be the head Shinto shrine of former Musashi Province, which covered present day Greater Tokyo, including large parts of Saitama Prefecture. It is this shrine which gave Omiya (which literally means "great shrine") its name.
The shrine is set in lush greenery and has many auxiliary buildings on its grounds. A long approach from the south leads to the shrine's precincts, where a tall vermillion torii gate and several secondary shrines are located. Proceeding north takes visitors to a bridge across a pond. Here, the two-storied Romon Gate marks the entrance to the main shrine grounds, where the main hall (honden), the praying hall (haiden) and a dance stage (maiden) stand.
Musashi Ichinomiya is the most important of the many branches of Hikawa Shrines in Japan, which enshrine Susanoo, the God of the sea and storms. Additional structures have been added to the shrine during its history and its current main buildings date back to 1940. For most of the year, this shrine has a tranquil environment. However, during special occasions, such as during hatsumode (first visit to a shrine on New Year ), it becomes one of the most visited shrines in Japan.
Hikawa Shrine is a ten minute walk from Kita Omiya Station (2 minutes, 150 yen from Omiya Station by Tobu Noda Line). Alternatively, it can be reached in a 20-30 minute walk from Omiya Station.

一般的な塔婆は木で出来ていますが、こちらを訪問すれば 秩父地域で切り出された緑泥片岩(りょくでいへんがん)を加工して作られた板石塔婆(いたいしとうば)を鑑賞することが出来ます。緑泥片岩で出来た塔婆は まるで木の板のように薄く、それでいて 独特の緑色と形状により 木では出すことが出来ない味わいを出しています。 日本国内には板石塔婆が5万数千基、その内の半分は埼玉県内にあると言われていますので その一端を知る意味でも 板石塔婆に関心を持たれている方に 訪問お薦めします。なお 浄念寺の説明文には こちらにある板石塔婆で最も古いものは正和4年(1315)、最も新しいものは天文19年(1550)とあります。
