Nakazeki is a reservoir used for agricultural purposes located in the Naka area in Minamiboso City. It looks like an unremarkable pond at first sight, but is actually a very visitor friendly waterfront park. The trail that goes around the pond is the perfect length for a family with small children, making it an ideal spot for a nature walk. It’s also a great place for fishing. Please note that parking spaces are available, but the driveway can be narrow in places for large SUVs.
The waterfront park in Kyonan-town consists of the Sakuma Dam and its surrounding area. The scenery can be appreciated anytime of the year, but a special highlight is the spring season, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Narcissus bloom in December, and Yoritomo-Zakura in the middle of February. In early April, Somei-yoshino cherries cover the whole area in a breathtaking display of pale pink. The park is probably vast enough for us to practice social distancing!
