Sanrizuka Memorial Park used to be the Shimofusa Imperial Stock Farm built in 1875.
When the imperial farm was moved to Tochigi in 1969, this place was left as a memorial park.
With in the park is the Sanrizuka Imperial Pastures Museum, which was built to leave a lasting record of rich and brilliant 100-year history of livestock-farming in Japan.
Although it looks like a traditional Japanese building from the outside, the inside features the "Hall of Honor", an eclectic mix of Japanese and Western styles.
Outside are the expansive grounds with their long walkway lined with horse chestnut trees, literature monuments of Yoshu Mizuno and Kotaro Takamura, making this a very relaxing place.
In spring, the cherry trees come alive in a sea of blossoms, making this a popular spot for Hanami flower viewing.
