Mitoriike Park


Places to visit

Mitoriike Park, located to the north of Kencho-higashi intersection along Route 369, is a green site with an elongated shape.
The park is also called Mitorii Pond, because visitors can see the Ichi-no-torii (First gateway) of Kasugataisha Shrine.
The park also encompasses Todoroki Bridge and Kumoi-zaka Hill listed in the “NantoHakkei” (Eight Views of Nara).
