Fukiwarenotaki Falls

Reviewed By Ahmad L

We were suppose to go to Oze National Park, but the park rangers didn't allow any unauthorized cars to go there due to bad weather, being bummed out, on our way back to the freeway, my sister found this place on the internet and thought we should salvage the trip by going here. Wow was it a trip. It's a waterfall with a little 2 km hike that will take you across 2 Bridges and back to the main road and back near the falls where you get up close and personal with the falls. It's a beautiful place. Will definitely come back here again if and when I'm going to Oze National Park again.

Denen Plaza Kawaba

Reviewed By J Lee S - Los Angeles, California

This is a very nice and family-oriented place. There's something for everyone here. Lots of local goods and organic vegetables are sold here which immediately get snapped up by travelers going up and down the main highway. There are also nice places for a quick snack or drink. While in the neighborhood, I recommend checking out some nearby attractions like the Kichijyo-ji Temple with its amazing flowers and beautiful rock garden, or any of the nearby ryokans like Yutorian for a dip in an onsen.

Lockheart Castle

Reviewed By Tanaka G - Tokyo

I have a hard time deciding the title of this post as the castle is oriented towards the lovers, young …soon to be married guests ….or I might be wrong…
My daughter enjoyed getting dressed for 1500¥/hour and my 68year old parents enjoyed ringing the "Spring bell" which is supposed to bring eternal love.
I enjoyed the Patricia cafe and the wedding gallery! Beware…a lot of steps…

Tambara Lavender Park

Reviewed By Isha1203 - Japan

You don`t have to go to Hokkaido to see the Lavender but Tambara is just few hours away from Tokyo.
During the winter Tambara Park is Famous as Ski ground but in summer ski slope turned to a beautiful purple carpet. Not only the area covered with aromatic lavender but rainbow color flowers add more essence to a beautiful scenery with red, pink,yellow and orange color flowers. You can get in to ski lift and have a look from above too which is very unique too.
Don`t forget to scream for lavender ice cream too .
Useful info for travelers.
▼Admission: 1,000 yen, free for elementary school students and younger
▼Best time to see lavender: Mid-July to mid-August
▼Access

Michi-no-Eki Agrimu Showa

Reviewed By すいかとまと - Saitama-shi, Saitama, Japan

とてもきれいな道の駅で建物の作りも工夫してあり楽しく過ごせました。足湯は室内にあり天気の悪い日も安心して使えていいなと思いました。しかも大小さまざまな大きさの足湯があり他のお客さんと一緒に入らなくていいので気分的には楽だと思いました。バーべーキューもできるようで小さい子も楽しめていいなと思いました。

Reviewed By BD1ライダー - Hirakata-shi, Osaka, Japan

真田丸、ブラタモリで有名になった沼田、河岸段丘の端に位置する沼田城が難航不落と共に交通の要所であることがよくわかりました。今は石垣などわずかな痕跡しかありませんが、かつて五層の天守閣があった沼田城は天下の名城に違いないでしょう。

Haruna Shrine

Reviewed By hiro_n・Sayamashi - Sayama, Japan

 水上温泉での一泊旅行の帰りに立ち寄りました。参拝の後、境内を清掃されていた女性(神官さんの奥さん?)に“御朱印帳を忘れたのですが…”との言葉を掛けたところ、手を止め、丁寧に白衣に着替えて御朱印を作成してくれました。また、作業途中に榛名山の神社と当社との関係についてお聞きしたところ、丁寧にお教え下さるなど素朴で親近感の持てる神社でした。本殿裏手にある筋彫りで、指先で凹んだ“面々美様”の優しい笑顔も一見に値します。
