Pleasant visit

Mini bus ride within the park. Cycling routes and bike hire available. Plenty of trees and green. Sure you can park your car near the official car park. Its cheaper.

The Togakushi region is splendid in summer and a place to visit both the spiritual and botanic side of Japan. The extensive gardens provide the perfect opportunity to return to the bus pick up point via a different means rather than the cedar lined walkway to and from the temple.
