Yatai-no-Machi Central Park 屋台のまち中央公園 

Yatai-no-Machi Central Park is home to the Yatai Museum, Tourism and Local Products Centre and “Kikusuien”, one of three famous gardens in Kanuma. The Yatai Museum’s exhibits include three hand-carved wooden floats – official local cultural properties – and videos on the Kanuma Autumn Festival which is designated an Important Folk Cultural Property. Take a close look at elaborate carvings on the floats and learn about the history of this famous festival. 

Built in the early 1900s, “Kikusuien” was known as one of three outstanding gardens in Kanuma at that time. Many cultural elites such as Sumio Kawakami (a printmaker) visited and loved this Japanese garden. Nowadays many people come to the restored garden for its fantastic autumn leaves in late November. 

The Tourism and Local Products Centre is a hub for tourism offering a selection of brochures about destinations in Kanuma in addition to a wide range of local products. At the Konjac café, visitors can enjoy a variety of dishes hand made from the local all-natural Konjac potatoes.
