Sajiki no Mori "Sajiki no Mori" is a village hill covered with a forest of cherry blossom and maple trees, in which can be found "Banko-an" (built in the Masuda style), a storehouse, a waterwheel, Kaeru Shrine, terraced paddy fields and more. There is also the popular 175-meter slide "Mori no Suberidai". You can feel the changing seasons with all five senses while strolling around the forest.


Banko-an A house built in the Gero region's "Masuda-zukuri" style. A wide earth floor spreads before you as you enter the house. It looks like a one-story house, but actually there is an upstairs, too. The large roof sweeps down deeply over the sides of the house and the eaves are short.
