Insanely spectacular azaleas in full bloom at Tsutsujigaoka Park and Tsutsuji-en Garden. Also see koinobori carp streamers along the river to Lake Jonuma. One of Tatebayashi's major attractions in spring.

Morinji Temple 茂林寺


tt416-20120528_0685.jpg

Soto-Zen temple famous for the Bunpuku Chagama (分福茶釜) folk tale about a tanuki raccoon dog that transformed into a steel pot used by the temple priest over the fire. When it got too hot, the tanuki reverted back to itself and ran away. Tatebayashi is a Tanuki Town because you see it everywhere. Souvenir shops also sell the beckoning tanuki which are made in Shigaraki, Shiga Prefecture. Near Morinji-mae Station on the Tobu Line. Temple address: 群馬県館林市堀工町1570 Thanks to my friend Bessie for taking me around the city.

Tobu Treasure Garden Tatebayashi 東武トレジャーガーデン館林


tt782-20120528_0753.jpg

Flower garden that was operated by Tobu. Sadly, Tobu Treasure Garden permanently closed on June 14, 2021 due to the pandemic. It had roses, moss pink, and other flowers near Morinji Temple. Originally named "Yachonomori Garden" (館林野鳥の森ガーデン) which changed to "Tatebayashi The Treasures Garden" (ザ・トレジャーガーデン館林) in April 2012.
in April 2015, the name changed again to "Tobu Treasure Garden" (東武トレジャーガーデン). The garden was forced to close in April 2020, reopened temporarily, but closed again from June 8, 2020. The garden never reopened after that. Roses were in bloom when I went in late May 2012.

Tatebayashi Castle remains, Rekishi-no-Mori history park, and Tataranuma Park (多々良沼公園). Tataranuma Park is a prefectural park with a small, marshy lake with enough reed fields to attract swans migrating from Siberia every winter. A shrine on a small island is dedicated to the goddess Benzaiten. The pleasant lakeside park also has lots of picnic space and wisteria.
