Sakichidaibutsu

Reviewed By Prepcook - Fussa, Japan

This is a wonderful place to visit if you find yourself in the area. It is not far from a train station on the west side of town, on a quiet street. The building is not very large but is almost always open and very welcoming. Posted on the wall running three quarters around the room is the history of the statue and the man behind it. Of the four Daibutsu I have visited; this smallest one so far has the most complete, and moving, history posted in english. Part of what makes it so moving is that it is the efforts of one man that caused it to be created; not the will of the rich or powerful and it is a symbol
of devotion on many levels.
Spend a few moments Reading the tale of how this place came to be and light a stick of fragrant incense or simply enjoy the feeling of peace and calm the quiet atmosphere promotes. Leave a small donation if you want, it goes toward keeping the doors open
for others to enjoy, as you have.

Chiyobo Inari Shrine

Reviewed By TourGuideTanzan - Ichinomiya, Japan

Chiyobo Inari is a shrine but more interesting thing is a shopping street in front of the shrine. There are restaurants for local cuisine, Japanese sweets shops, pickled vegetable shops, etc.
It's a fun to wonder into the shopping street even for Japanese people. so if you have a chance, do not miss it.

150種類1200本の梅を楽しむことができる梅の名所です。入場も駐車場も無料なので梅のシーズンは平日でも結構混みます。
北側の小さな梅園の方ははそれなりに考えられて作庭されているようですが、南側の広い浄化センターの方は均等に並べて植えられている感じで品種の展示場のようで雰囲気は今一つです。これだけの本数があると手入れも大変でしょうが、頑張ってほしいです。

Nobi Fireworks

Held annually in mid-August, this huge fireworks display is a joint production between the city of Hashima in Gifu prefecture, situated on the west bank of the Kiso River, and Ichinomiya in Aichi prefecture, situated on the river's east side. About 5,000 dazzling fireworks-including wide starmines, reverse Niagaras, and huge 2-shakudama fireworks, the largest in the Tokai region-are launched from the floodplains upstream from the Nobio Ohashi bridge to light up the night sky. The celebrated Makiwara-Bune ships, each decorated with about 400 paper lanterns, also float down the river during the festival, making for an otherworldly sight.

岐阜県羽島市と愛知県一宮市が共同で開催する複数の県に跨って開催される花火大会のようです。
幅約200mの逆ナイアガラや華やかなスターマインなど、約5000発の花火が映る木曽川の川面には、約400個の提灯を付けた"まきわら舟"が浮かべられ、幻想的な風景です。
アクセスは交通規制が厳しくなるので、駐車場を早い目にリサーチし決めておくと当日余裕を持って楽しめます。

安八町役場の隣にある公共の複合施設で、館内には歴史民俗資料館、プラネタリウム、図書館、喫茶店などがあります。
歴史民俗資料館は入館無料で、地元出身の蓑虫山人の業績やゆかりの品が多く展示されていました。名前も知らない方でしたが、幕末から明治期に画家などで活躍されたそうで、入水自殺を企てた西郷隆盛を助けたり亀ヶ岡式土偶を発掘したり結構興味をそそられる方だったので今後いろいろ調べたくなりました。
屋外には蓑虫山人の庭園や安八の天然水が汲めるスポットもあり楽しく立ち寄りできる場所でした。

Oku no Hosomichi Musubi no Chi Memorial Hall

Reviewed By StanleyAuckland - Auckland, New Zealand

" Oku no Hosumichi" was the title of the five month Literary journey of the great haiku poet Basho. This journey ended in Ogaki in the autumn of 1689.
Though documents and haiku in the Matsuo Basho Memorial Museum are in japanese, this museum is still worth a look as it is on the walking route around Ogaki City. At a guess, the total distance for the walk would be about seven kilometes.

I visited here to enjoy seeing the wisteria that lives for more than 300 years. The bulletin board say that this wisteria stretches the branches 33 meters wide from east to west and 15 meters wide from north to south. Why don't you try a tea on the bench feeling the beauty of the wisteria during their festival? When you come to by car you can found the free parking area easily.
