Flower Park Yasoen
As part of the commemorative project for the 100th anniversary of the municipal administration, the Yasoen flower park was opened to promote loving and growing plants through contact with Nature, spreading the spirit of a city development full of flowers and greenery while coexisting with Nature.
There are about 1,000 kinds of plants including various wild grass and trees.
There are seasonal wild grasses such as Spodoptera litura, Coccinella septempunctata, Mitsukigashiwa, Akebonosou, etc. and many other rare plants.
There is a Nature Learning Center in the park, which provides a guide to park and information on nature.
