Azaleas Blooming in Obonai Park

Azaleas in Obonai Park in Tazawako area are blooming this week. They are seen in various hues!

The entrance to the park.

There is a gazebo and a play area on top of the hill.

Obonai Park is about 15 minutes walk from JR Tazawako Station. It could be a nice walk in the small neighborhood. There is a hot spring facility a few minutes from the park. If you have 2-3 hours at the station and feel like discovering the small community, take  a little walk from the Station.
If you are at JR Tazawako Station, go to Folake Tazawako Tourist Information Center and ask for a map of the local area (English and Korean are available). Make some stops at delicatessens, pastry shops, grocery shops and have a picnic at the park! You can rent a bicycle near the station (across from taxi office) and ride around the town as well.
