On the way from Otorii station to the house is Haginaka park. It boasts a lot of trees, like cherry, plum, and keyaki. You can workout or play sports here, and it's a popular spot for families. Ther's also a space with small rides, on trains, boats, and more. We recommend checking that out. We imagined how it would have been even way more fun if we were kids!
