Jigenji Park じげんじこうえん

Relaxing park surrounded by nature in historical area.

This large park is on the premises of the former Jigenji Temple built around 1400 years ago. The temple was torn down in 1869. The natural environment and a clear stream has been preserved in the area. There is a mystic atmosphere around its trail. 
A popular activity is picking cold somen noodles from a “somen nagashi” dish, a special device that spins noodles in water. In summer many visitors including families visit here. The best season is from the middle of March to the end of October. Rape-flowers and cosmos grow in the large park that is also known for cherry blossoms in spring.
