A great place to relax in the fresh air is Omizu en, a historic garden founded in the 18th century. Visitors can admire a lot of trees, ornamental plants and flowers, and a huge pond in the middle of the park. Feeding fish in the pond became a popular entertainment among holidaymakers. It'd be most interesting to visit the garden during the cherry blossom. Many Japanese cherry trees are planted on the banks of the pond.
