Arimafuji Park

Reviewed By James1234516 - Sanda, Japan

This is a decent size park with a great outdoor kids playground. There's some nice walking tracks which surround the large pond. This pond is popular with bird photographers and other wildlife can be seen depending on the season. Be careful of snakes in the warmer months. There's a tradition style house which is good for some pics. There are lots of different plants, trees and Gardens. Great place for a picnic, a walk or to let kids play. There's plenty of parking but this park does get rather busy during holiday periods.

Hyogo Prefectural Operated Human and Nature Museum

Reviewed By Stephenbkk20156 - Okayama Prefecture, Japan

One of the most beautifully designed and operated museums I have ever been too. What a pity it is not better known.
Minimal entrance fee. Easily accessible from Kobe Dentetsu's Minami Woody Town Station. All the facilities for study, research or casual inspection you could ever hope for.
The name is a bit weird, but does accurately describe what is on offer. The museum portrays human and natural activities in Hyogo Prefecture, through explanatory panels, interactive exhibits, models, mosk-ups, diagrams, short videos, etc. Great for kids because of all the stuffed animals and interactive exhibits. Fascinating for adults. Catch the displays about the Kobe Earthquake and How to be a Naturalist. Facilities, too, for the serious scholar.
We were warmly welcomed, helped to buy tickets and then basically left alone. Not a lot of information in English. None in other languages (apart from Japanese) but the exhibits themselves are fun. It helps to have an elementary knowledge of Hyogo geography so that you can at least follow the maps.
Highly recommended.

5月11日に訪問しました。隣の花菖蒲園は五分咲きでした。それよりも、この永澤寺の方が見応えありでした。ここは曹洞宗の由緒あるお寺で、本堂でおまいりするほかにも、ガンダーラ仏や大観世音菩薩像におまいりできます。

Kazanin Bodaiji Temple

Reviewed By James1234516 - Sanda, Japan

This is a beautiful place to visit. The temple is situated about 25 mins drive from central Sanda. It's located at the top of a very steep road. There's parking at the top or leave your car at the bottom and walk up. There are many momiji trees so beautiful Autumn colors can be seen and also a nice lush green in summer. There's lots of traditional buildings, statues and a nice lookout which faces back towards Sanda City. Parking costs ¥500 and the grounds are usually very peaceful and seldomly crowded.

Hanano Jutan

Reviewed By tom94826

花のじゅうたん、近隣から多くの観光客が押し寄せるため、駐車場があふれ、大渋滞が起こります。行きは一番早いバスに乗ったため、定刻の到着でしたが、12時過ぎに帰ろうとすると、バスがたどり着けないということで30分ほど遅れてきました。バスも満員で大変でした。時間帯が悪ければ、三田駅から2時間以上かかると思われるので要注意です。

Shingetsuin Temple

Reviewed By sharaly - Tokyo Prefecture, Japan

旧三田藩主・九鬼家の菩提寺とのことで、本堂の前は美しく手入れされた石庭となっています。京都界隈にあるようなお寺のようです。
三田市西山の坂を上ったところに建っています。
数年前に初めて訪れた時は、三田市散策の途中に予備知識も無くふらっと立ち寄ったのですが、何と!白洲次郎さん正子さんご夫妻を含む白洲家のお墓のあるお寺で驚きました。
九鬼家の墓地も白洲家の墓地も広い敷地を垣根で囲んで区分けされています。
初回訪問時には本堂の中も見学させていただきましたが、歴史を学ぶこともできて学ぶことが多かったです。
今回の訪問時は、夏休みの小学生たちがこちらでお習字を習うために集まっていました。

Goryo Shrine

Reviewed By Taka H - Kobe, Japan

拝殿の正面にある彫刻の鳳凰や龍は素敵です。そして、本殿の正面の蟇股にある彫刻は梵字があり当時の神仏習合を表わしています。側面の彫刻もいいですね。本殿は、国の重要文化財で桁行二間、梁間正面三間、入母屋造、檜皮葺です。三田でこのような素敵な神社があったと感激しました。
