This is was the 11th national park to be established in Japan. There is the three hectare Flower Square where 70 varieties of flowers blossom between spring and autumn.
One of the highlights of the park is the Hiba no Sato - a set of carefully reproduced traditional Japanese dwellings, including farmhouses with thatched roofs, a kagura hall, craft centers and gardens. It also boasts one of the finest views of the Chugoku Mountains.
The Forest Athletic Course has 39 different sets of athletic equipment, a 4.6 km long cycling course, and a disc golf course. Go to the Tsudoi no Sato for regular golf and the cherry blossoms in spring. To top it all off, you can relax for hours in the 8-hectare Great Lawn Square.
