Okazaki Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 80 photos
The pond along the Doune Okan is nicknamed as "Taisho Pond" of Okazaki. Taisho Pond is one of the scenic spots in Kamikochi.
Doune Okan is an old highway which starts from Higashi Park. After walking paved road about 25 minutes from the Higashi Park passing two bridges over the highways the pavement ends and the road is getting more and more like a mountain trail.
I couldn't get so much information about this weir. What I learned so far was that this weir broke in 1882 when huge flood caused massive damage in Okazaki City.
Oto River runs close to Okazaki castle. Black-Headed Gulls are popular features of this river. But environmentalists may get mad when they see people on the bridge feed them to get closer look.
Really a great Noh stage. I hope I can see a real Noh performance there someday.
In Japan, black swans are kept as pets in some of the parks in Japan.
Black Swans in Higashi Park, Okazaki are very popular among visitors.
