    Kuragaike Park

    • \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

    This family-friendly park is equipped with tourist facilities centered on Kuragaike Pond. It is accessible from the adjoining Tokai-Kanjo Expressway Kuragaike Parking Area, making it very convenient. Making the most of the rich natural environment of Aichi-Kogen Quasi-National Park, the vast grounds have a variety of appealing facilities, including a zoo, botanical garden, guest ranch, a “play house” for children’s play activities, and a parking area viewing deck.
