Daihikan Park


Northern Kujukushima Takashima/Ainoura/Kosaza/Shikamachi

The symbol of the park, a large 20-meter high sand stone is a must-see.

There are facilities that are enjoyable for a whole family such as a softball field, tennis courts, a playground, and a grass skiing field and so on. Cherry blossoms in April, azaleas and irises from May through June, those are the flowers that add colors to the park. The huge kanji letters engraved on a giant rock "Daihikan" were carved in 1830, and it is said that about one bale of rice goes into one letter, and also there are hidden pictures engraved in each letter.
