If you want an active day out, look no further than Takatsu town in Masuda city. There is a lake there called Lake Banryu where you can enjoy boating, feeding carp, or having a stroll. Lake Banryu is a part of a Prefectural Nature Park. In the park, there is also Kakinomoto shrine, Park Manyo, and Manyo botanical garden. Local people enjoy walking around there through four seasons. Flowers bloom in spring, and in Autumn, leaves change the beautiful color.
