Nabana no Sato
Nabana no Sato (Nabana Park) is so named after a local plant called ‘nabana’. Nabana Park is a privately owned botanic gardens and it draws the crowds. Each season they have some feature display. In winter, they have the night time “winter illumination”. Photography wise, there’s very few interesting opportunities, but it is a great place to take your date.
For the intrepid photographer, there are a few nice opportunities. But the best is when you get completely bored (no date), and get wildly experimental (see below). These images should soon appear on my portfolio at Asia Photo Connection (Henry Westheim Photography).
