In our huge area, We have a big greenhouse, water lily pool, ponds and farms.Our greenhouse is completely air-conditioned which offers cool breeze in summer and warmness in winter, even in rainy days you can enjoy and have fun visiting Kachouen comfortably.People with disabilities who uses wheelchairs and families who have baby carts should not worry because our park is barrier-free, everyone can enjoy and have fun visiting our park.
I loved this place it was so cool. I have never fed a toucan let alone held one or even touched an owl. Great for toddlers and up. Bring extra money so you can buy all the food you want to feed the birds with! There are tons of different ones and you can feed fish if you want as well. Unforgettable experience. A must do!!!!! (Unless you are scared of birds)

I was only able to visit the garden of the castle because I arrived after the opening hours so i can't tell anything about the inside but the outside is really nice, the castle and garden looks really nive in sunset. There is also a little flower garden next to it and also a tea ceremony house together with a palace what you can visit from inside during the opening hours. The castle is a 5-10 minute walk from Kakegawa station on a top of a little hill. It's a very easy walk even to the top on big stone stairs.
If you happen to be in Kakegawa I recommend visit this place.

I've seen this museum featured on a Japan TV show and decided to look it up when I was in the area. You pretty much need a rental car for the Kakegawa area to get to it. It looks like some fairy tale house you see in a Harry Potter film. The museum is devoted to artwork created by mentally retarded children. The paintings, pictures, murals consist of millions of letters or icons of the exact same thing, similiar to pointillist painting but using a specific character or symbol to produce the overall effect of a painting or drawing. Many of the artwork was quite fascinating. I took many pictures of the outside and almost got away with stealing a few pics of the artwork except I was scolded by the attendant.
Kakegawa area between Nagoya and Shizuoka City is a wonderful off-the-beaten-path destination. It's main attraction is a handsome castle. Although small, the castle grounds and town area around it are impeccably maintained. Kachoen Bird Park is without doubt the best in Japan due to the great variety of friendly birds that will perch on your hands, arms, and head! Kachoen is one of a chain of bird/botanical parks which includes Vogel Park in Matsue, but the Kakegawa one is much better. Owl shows are also put on couple of times a day. Kamo Garden is best visited when it's ayame or iris fields are in full bloom, which contrast beautifully with the white-washed walls of the Kamo Estate:

There is a photo studio next to the main gate.That's name is Fukuda Studio.If you want to wearing Samurai armor can be rented over there and shooting photos.They have Kimono of wedding dresses too. Because the professional who wears the kimono will dress, It is better to go after booking by making a phone call.

It is a cute museum with a lot of religious stained glass. But to the people in Japan this is a true treasure since stained glass is rare out there. It is really pretty. But it is a small place so it can get crowded so if you are a big group avoid it maybe seeing as how it will be a tight squeeze.
