In the heart of the forest there is a pond called ’Kamata Pond’, and there is a about 2km mostly flat walking path all around the pond where you can casually enjoy a peaceful stroll through the woods. Around 90 types of plants grow here. Among them, the bald cypress trees which stand up straight while immersed by the waterside is the most fantastic view.
