We had a very pleasant walk from near Tsudanuma Station to the Rose Garden to a great display of acres of blooming roses.
Very nice the way it has been set out with the central Fountain and ponds running off each way from there .
A few nice statues around the place but I don't know if they hold any significants as nothing is there to be read in English.
From what I could gather the ROSE GARDEN was part of a theme park that was in this area years ago before Disney Land opened it's gates.
There are two very long arbours which are very attractive and form a lovely tunnel to walk through. Over to one side of the park is a nice water area which contains some nice colourfull fish and beside it are a couple of nice apple trees full of fruit.
Entrance staff were very helpful and friendly , offered my wife an umbrella for protection against the sun which is a real Japanese thing, thank you for that. The place was in good nick and must take a lot of work to keep it that way. We noticed a few people working in the garden and some of them were seniors which is good to see and we wondered if they are volunteers, whatever they are all to be congratulated on a beautiful garden and great community asset.
We spent a nice couple of relaxing hours there and got some great photos.It was interesting that one of the garden beds contained roses named after some well known famous people mainly actors.
Well worth a visit if your in the area.

Had a nice walk to the Yatsu Tidal Flats from where we are staying near Tsudanuma Station. These wetlands are situated at the extreme end of Tokyo Bay and comprise 40 hectares. Sea water comes in and out with the tides of the bay and is home to large numbers of birds as there is plenty of food here for them.
The tide was out the morning we were there so the flats were fully exposed and we could see lots of crabs, small fish and clams etc. Apparently when the tide is in the flats are under a metre of water. It is a good 3.5 km. walk around the wetlands with good spots to view the birds from and nice garden beds to admire, it is all level walking on good paved pathways ,it would be a good spot for a picnic stop too . We visited the Nature Observation Centre there that was opened in 1994, it is a big building on the waters edge with lots of information and display areas. There are lots of binocular/ telescope stands for viewing the birds, good areas for kids , they can even get dressed up as birds. You can get drinks and food at the café while enjoying bird watching.
Admittance price is as follows, Adults 370 Yen, pensioners 65 plus with proof of age 180 Yen, I used my Aussie drivers license for proof, Children under 15 admitted free. On entry I was given a information leaflet in Japanese but underlined with English which was great. Definitely worth visiting especially if your interested in bird life but also to learn about the interesting history of the wetlands.

While visiting family in Tsudanuma I did a lot of walking and just by chance came across this very peaceful park in a forest setting .
A lovely big pond and a smaller one were jumping with some sort of fish, some of them quite big, it was lovely to see them moving through the water as the sunlight sparkled through the trees then jump and flop back down with a splash, I presume they were feeding on insects on the surface. I also spotted some turtles as well. On one section of the pond their was a mass of beautiful white water flowers with huge green leaves. There is plenty of Seating and toilet facilities. Also there is an old logging train on display. Such a lovely spot to come and get away from a busy lifestyle for a while, maybe have a picnic, I know we would do that if we lived nearby, enjoyable.

Came across this lovely original home quite by accident when out walking in the area. All I could see at the start was this big thatched roof , when I got to it there was a sign near steps leading up to it so I thought this must be something to have a look at, the sign was in Japanese so could not read a word of it. Up I went thinking if it is lived in all they can do is tell me to leave. I came to the garden entry and then I could see it was a lovely very old Japanese house. There was a gentleman there trimming the hedge and he could see I was reluctant to enter so he beckoned me into the garden. Nice friendly fellow who spoke no English but he let me know I could enter the house and that it was ok to take photos.
It was an amazing house built a long time ago, he mentioned the Edo era and pointed out to me the different layers of thatch on the roof, the thatch was very thick. He then conveyed to me how the walls were made by mixing mud and straw and putting it in between the timber frame. Very solidly made with big timber beams in the roof, Tudor type construction.
One big area had a packed earth floor , kitchen I'd guess, where the fire was. Then the next area was lovely timber flooring and the next Tatami Mat floors. A very big place and no doubt it was a very grand home in it's day. I had a good look around and took a few photos and he gave me a brochure which was in Japanese . I was able to find out later on that this was the family home of the Osawa Family who were the heads of the village and that the home was built in 1664 so it has really stood the test of time. I thank the gentleman there who was so helpful and kind to me.
It would be a bonus if there was some information in English, there must be a great history and story with this house. I loved it and it is well worth a visit to see how people lived long ago .
