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.
