- Takarazuka Nature Village
- Located in the Nishitani area in the north of the city, this is an expansive adventure-style nature park covering approximately 45 square kilometers. The Center offers farming tourism opportunities as well as a place for rest, research, and meetings. Within the scenic beauty of this untouched nature, visitors can pick dahlias or chestnuts or strawberries, dig for potatoes, go fishing, and experience even more, year-round. The park is especially exciting during potato and chestnut seasons, and is perfect for picnicking. Meanwhile, unmanned stalls on the roadside sell fresh produce including potatoes, eggplants, and onions, allowing visitors to taste the true essence of Takarazuka's outdoors. *Fruit-picking and similar experiences require advanced reservations.
