Busshozan Onsen is chic and modern hot spring. Its onsen is good of course, and I like its restaurant's shaved ice very much. Even the last spoon makes me happy for its deliciousness.◎They offer shaved ice from May to November.

Busshozan Park

Busshozan Park is famous as a beautiful place of azalea. Pink, purple and white azalea bloom all over the park, and you can find photogenic places anywhere. I like the azalea tunnel in front of Honen-ji Temple.◎The best season to see starts from the end of April to the beginning of May. There're some parking areas. And the gate near Honen-ji Temple is good to see the azalea.
