Ashikaga Gakko

Located just two hours by train from Tokyo, the small and unassuming town of Ashikaga in southern Tochigi prefecture is home to Japan’s first academic institution. Ashikaga Gakko, or Ashikaga School, lies in the heart of Ashikaga.

Ashikaga Flower Park

The Ashikaga Flower Park is one of the most famous parks of its kind in the world. It was selected by CNN as one of the top nine international dream destinations in 2014, and for good reason, as it has something remarkably alluring to offer for each of Japan’s four seasons.

Shiroyama Park in Sano, Tochigi Prefecture

The astounding beauty of Shiroyama Park and its simple access for travelers are two of many reasons for a visit. Located in Sano, home of Japan’s most famous Ramen, Shiroyama Park is literally connected to the south exit of Sano station. The park is a very popular spot to view the Cherry Blossoms, but you’ll find enjoyment here all year round.
