Today I went to Mikata Goko with my brother. It was cloudy.
Mikata Goko is an area consisting of five lakes. Among the five lakes, Lake Suigetsu is the most internationally renowned. I’ll write the reasons why in my next post(The Miracle Lake in Fukui Prefecture,Japan).
Mikata Goko is located in Wakasa-cho, Fukui Prefecture, Japan. I read that you can see Mikata Goko clearly from Summit Park(山頂公園 Sanchou Koen in Japanese), which is at the peak of a mountain. You have to go to a parking lot on the Rainbow Line (Mikata Goko Toll Road) by car or taxi, and you can go to Summit Park by lift or cable car from there.
We took a lift, but my brother and I were a little scared. However, the distance between the lift and the ground wasn’t so far, so I was relieved.
There were a lot of people at Summit Park, and I saw three people from overseas. The scenery was even better than I’d expected. We enjoyed the 360-degree panoramic views of Mikata Goko and the Sea of Japan. A lot of people were sat down enjoying the scenery.
(These are pictures of Summit Park.I took above pictures from Fukui Photo Gallery.)
There were swings, a hammock, a footbath, and shops in the park. I heard the laughter of children.
I recommend this as a good place to go.
