4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Sitting on top of a hill, it has a nice garden, a temple with torii gates and a nice observations deck with a nice view of Niji No Matsubara (“Rainbow Pine Grove”). This place was named after a local legend about a princess and a mirror (KAGAMI) by her lover. A statue of her is located by the observation deck.
