Kan O-en Garden (Inside Sanuma Park)

Have a relaxing time at a famous cherry blossom viewing spot

This garden is known for its beautiful cherry blossoms.

It also features Sanuma An with a Japanese-style garden, a 1-hectare lawn square, and an iris garden, offering a relaxing time even in non-cherry blossom seasons.

Located next to Sanuma Lake, one of Ibaraki's 100 scenic spots, the garden allows visitors to walk the Sanuma Promenade along the lake.
