Thousands of cranes around the crane Observatory. Very nice. Most of them are standing around or eating. Every so often some will fly overhead, an awesome sight!
At the Observatory, you'll need long-lens to get nice pictures of the bird. If you have time, you might walk along the public roads to adjoining fields where scattered bunches of cranes are feeding. Catch the crane shuttle bus at #1 stop at the Izumi train station. One-way ride is 500-yen; all-day pass is 1000-yen and it includes the entry to the crane Observatory -- the best deal! The bus leaves the station at 9:35, 10:37, 11:39, 12:56, 13:58; and 15:00. The bus makes several stops along the way but the main ones are the Crane museum, the Observatory park, and the samurai residences. There is a map with schedule but only in Japanese.

There are several buildings in the area that were owned by samurai families and our well preserved. A couple of them provide tours and one you can even dress up like a samurai. There is a Wi-Fi-based audio tour that’s interesting to listen to and free. Same company as at the crane center. There’s also supposed to be an ox cart ride thing, but I didn’t see it. It was only ¥500 to tour the houses. Be sure to wear shoes that are easy to take on and off, because you can’t wear your shoes inside Japanese houses.

Recently I had visited Kanon-in Kaga-tera and saw a huge bell there. The add says that this is the biggest bell in the world with diameter 5 m, height 10 m, and weight more then 350000 kg. That bell is not on the list of the heaviest bells of the world. Unfortunately, my japanese is rather poor, so i could not read well the add I got from the tample, and could not ask any detailed questions at the spot. That bell made deep impression on me, so I wanted to find more details about it. To my surprise I was unable to find anything at least in English.
Would be happy if you can clarify the issue to me.

The musuem is very well-organized. However all the information is in Japanese. It would have been great if the explanatory notes are in English and other major languages.
