of the bank of Nakagawa River. This is Shinkawa Nishi Suimon Hiroba Plaza
where visitors could enjoy touching Edo
world. A 15.5m tall fire lookout
and high strong magnificent stone walls
around it are dramatically wonderful. The fire lookout is not so much a
tower as a castle in Sengoku Period. Visitors could climb up the lookout
and see the landscapes around it. The views for Sakura along Shinkawa River
in spring are specially luxuriously beautiful. And the restroom near the
plaza is a very beautiful Japanese style building with white wall and cray
roof and its interior is made of woods.
Under the bank of Nakagawa River, an ivy covered large concrete building is the old west lock gate of Shinkawa River. This lock gate looks like a kind of ruins of the modern civilization in SF movies. It is excitingly wonderful to see it in the blue sky.
Climbing up the bank of Nakagawa on the west side of the plaza, visitors
could see Mt. Fuji
in fine days. It is very good place to spend leisure hours sitting on
the stone steps on it in warm seasons. It is a very good place for visitors
