    A great way to see Sapporo from above. The cable car ride is very much enjoy by the children. Up in the top, it is very cold even with jacket on

    We were in Fukuoka for the day during our cruise. Japanese friends met us and took us to this park. We rented bicycles so we could see most of this enormous park. The bicycles were in excellent condition. There were bicycle parking racks at intervals. We 4 adults had a great time going down the super slide in the playground area, We also enjoyed the bird area, the small but quality zoo, the rose garden which still had some roses in it even in late October, as well as other types of flowers, and of course, the immense fields of cosmos in bloom.

    The park is also convenient to access Shikanoshima, a land-tied island connected at a sandbar/causeway. There is scenery galore out there, and a fine seafood restaurant also.

    Visited with family

    Pros:
    1) This park can be reached via train and bus. Ensure to read and understand the directions carefully because it can be confusing.
    2) Best to visit with a full stomach and bring some drinks and snacks. My family and I visited right before lunch, luckily there was a small cafe inside the park which was quite a walk from the main entrance.
    3) There is a bike rental a few meters from the entrance. Suggest to rent one. The park is huge and easier to cycle than walk.
    4) There were many attractions to visit but my favorite is the pyramid-shaped museum and cycling around the park.
    5) Allot 1 whole day or at least half day to visit. It closes around 5pm so best to start early.
    6) It is definitely child-friendly.
    7) Best toilet to use is at the pyramid-shaped museum.
    8) Wear something comfortable since this is an outdoor place.

    The only con I can think of is the insects that appeared around 5pm on the way to the bus station. It was similar to the insects we experienced at the Shiroi Koibito Park.

    A must-visit.

    I was surprised when my coworkers told me the most popular time to visit this park was during winter. But since visiting, I can see why. It's really beautiful when covered in snow.

    Then we drove to the second stop of the day: Nasu Animal Kingdom 那須動物王國. It is famous for having many animal shows, including Bird Performance Show, Cat Show, New Zealand Farm Show, and Aqua Friends.

    There are also areas where visitors can interact with animals closely, such as Capybara Forest, Alpaca Hill, Tropical Rainforest. We had a good time in the park, with the opportunity to interact with the animals, many we had not seen before let alone be in such close proximity.

    During the visit, one can also experience the nice ambiance of the Nasu Highland. Approaching noon we decided to have lunch at the Yamaneko Terrace, going for a soy sauce ramen while enjoying the gorgeous view in the backdrop.

    This gorgeous national park, a quick train-ride from Tokyo, is a beautiful trip away from the rush and press of urban life. It has breathtaking waterfalls and lots of hiking trails that cater to different levels, and there are nearby temples if you want to sit and relax for a bit.

    Park where the deer roam free. Well maintained park and hardscape. The locals (and tourists) do a good job of leaving the deer in peace, other than feeding them. Watch out, as the deer will try to eat all paper you have, maps, paper bags, etc.

    Located in the Izu Geopark.
    On a clear day, you can see Izu Oshima in the distance.
    The scenery of nature is worth seeing. There is also a small suspension bridge, which will be a fun experience for children.

    A must do when in Hakodate is to go up the mountain. You can go on the rope way or by the bus that leaves from the station bus depot.
    We went in the late afternoon and had been warned get to the bus stop early as there will be a line up and you may not get on the bus and have to wait for the next one .
    That information turned out to be very good, we were there 30 minutes early and were third in line, by the time the bus came there were about 100 plus people waiting, we got a seat no problem and many people had to stand, others had to wait for the next bus so worth keeping that in mind .
    On the way up to the mountain top the view was good but at the top we were in heavy cloud.
    The place was packed, quite a lot of tour buses were parked there.
    Hard to get a spot neat the viewing area railing , once you did hang onto it .
    Every time there was a slight break in the clouds a roar went up from a big group of students who were there , that added to the atmosphere, Glad we took coats with us as it was cold up there, completely different from down at the mountain base.
    We were there for about an hour all up , the clouds moved away twice just for a few seconds but not completely so hard to get cleat photos of the city and port below.
    The lights do look great, on a clear night they say it is one of the best night views in Japan . We came back down on the first bus .
    Every one seems to want to do it at night to see the lights, but I think it would be great in the daytime to actually see all there is to see .

    You just do not know how magically this place captures your mind and heart. It is a combination of the beauty of nature reflected in the green hills and the hot steam onsens. It is a place where the mind comes to rest and the eyes delight in the magical nature.

    I love this place!

    In a nation of great gardens -- Okayama's Korakuen, Kanazawa's Kenrokuen, not to mention temple gardens such as the Tenryu-ji in Arashiyama, or the Moss Garden at Saihoji Temple in Kyoto -- it's still not surprising to say that Ritsurin Koen in Takamatsu in Shikoku is the standout.

    It's a place one can visit over and over and still desire to return to -- its three great lakes, its stream, its tea-houses, its groves, its sculptured trees, its rocks, its islands. It's a place one can never tire of. It's the place one visits first in Japan if one can -- I have been fortunate, and visited many, many times. And will visit again...

    Do take the journey over the Inland Sea -- you will carry Ritsurin in your mind life-long. You will return!

    The Niigata City Aquarium was a nice surprise excursion. Very modern and the exhibits were professionally done and educational. Don't expect the caliber of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, San Diego's Sea World, or Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, but well worth the visit. No huge crowds when we toured at the peak of the tourism season and all exhibits were in close walking distance. Fun to see the animals up close and not peering over people's head and shoulders. Even has a good popular restaurant on site or you can bring your own lunch.
