A good place to see have an ice cream or coffee and spend some time. Cultural activities showed some times. People doing Japanese exercise and others.

This truly is centrally located and so many fun places to visit within walking distance. It's also a great place to find a seat and enjoy your lunch on summer day.

There is a lot of building work going on in this area at present and from the architectural drawings on display it looks like it will be lovely when it is finished.
