Minuma Tsusenbori Park

Immerse yourself in the bamboo forest near the station before heading over to the Minuma Tsusenbori Park, about a ten-minute walk away. Said to be the oldest gated canal in Japan, it was completed an impressive 180 years before the Panama Canal. This was a vital step in opening up the region to more prosperous trade with Edo (Tokyo). Each year an opening and closing of the gate demonstration is held to exhibit the technology of the Edo period.
