Things to Do
Hanyuten Shrine - 羽生天神社
A small shrine in the hometown of Olympic/World Champion/world record holding figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu; has seven beautiful shuin, and you can have tea with the head priest. You might see Mr. Hanyu come and visit every so often, apparently?
Shinmeisha - 神明社
A Shinto shrine that sometimes has small festivals. Located next to a Shell station that may or may not only fuel semi trucks.
Hasekura Memorial Park - 支倉メモリアルパーク
Hasekura Tsunenaga was a samurai and a retainer of Date Masemune. He was the first Japanese person to sail to Rome on a diplomatic mission. He is considered the first Japanese ambassador to the Americas and Spain. He went on mulitple missions to Europe before Japan underwent years of isolation. This park is dedicated to him.
A lovely park with Sakura trees as far as the eye can see. It's on a big hill with many places to spread out and chill; perfect for hanami! Access is off the main road via a very tiny road that is lined with many houses. Look for the sign with the pirate ship. You can park in the big grass clearing at the base.
Go Go Land
A small, tiny, miniscule park located next to a Komer. It's a infamous landmark people use as "Oh, I'm in Osato".
