Geocache Description:


This park lies on the old battlegrounds where the Satomi clan battled the Hojo clan in the Muromachi Period. Located on a plateau over 20 m above sea level facing the Edogawa, the park features a Western style garden with a fountain and a flower garden, and is cherished by locals as a popular site for cherry blossom viewing. From the top of the hill on the western side of the park you can see the Edogawa's course in front of you, and on a clear day Mt. Fuji is visible in the distance.

The Akedo Tomb, the Shiensosha (the old residence of poet Hakushu Kitahara moved from Koiwa, Tokyo in 1969), and the Rakan No I (a well that the Satomi clan is said to have used for drinking water during battle), are situated in one corner of the park.

Inside the park you can enjoy the rose garden, wisteria trellises, ume (Japanese plum) grove, maple trees, as well as cherry blossoms and various seasonal plants and flowers.

Cache size is 17cm x 7cm x 5cm plastic tupperware.

室町時代に里見氏が北条氏と戦った古戦場跡。江戸川に面した海抜20m余の台地上にあり、噴水や花壇を配した西洋庭園があるほか、桜の名所としても市民に親しまれています。
園内西側の丘陵上からは江戸川の流れを眼下に、天気に恵まれれば遠く富士山なども眺望できます。
公園の一角には、明戸古墳や昭和44年に東京の小岩から移設した北原白秋の旧宅「紫烟草舎(しえんそうしゃ)」や里見氏一族が布陣の際に飲用水として使用したと伝えられている「羅漢の井」などがあります。
園内には桜のほかにバラ園、藤棚、梅林、モミジ林があり四季折々の植物が楽しめます。
