Mecca of river swimming

Near the Bantsuri bridge

The park located near the Bridge of Bantsuri was named after Choei Takano, a Dutch-trained scholar associated with Sawatari. He enjoyed fishing here when he was in hiding. Seseragi means the healing murmur of the stream as it flows by this river-side park.

Clear river

If you go down the stairs you can approach the shore. Many people go swimming upstream of Bantsuri Bridge in summer time. We recommend going there to cool off after relaxing in the onsen.
