Koyaike Park
Koyaike Pond, the main attraction at the park, was dug in the Nara period by the famous Buddhist priest Gyoki to protect against flooding. A wintering ground for migrating birds, visitors in fall and winter are sure to see many birds flocking to the water's surface; swans can be seen swimming the pond year-round. For this reason, there is a bird-watching bridge in the park, allowing visitors to observe the wild water birds; there is also the Koyaike Center and its observation room, offering panoramas of the pond. You'll also be near the Itami City Insect Museum and its colorful butterfly house, offering further opportunities to get closer to nature and refresh the senses.
