  • It walks quite a bit from Inuyama Yuen Station. However, the view from the castle tower is the best! The stairs to the castle tower are very steep and cannot be climbed unless you grab the railing. It seems to be better to avoid the mini skirt of the woman.

  • One of the five cities in Japan, japan's oldest wood-making skyguard. From Nagoya Dog Mountain Pass, you can play dog mountain city, and with the store discount voucher (limited to three times), is a good hand to go to Canhan Mountain City travel!
