Man’yo Park

“In remembering the distant days of our hometown Man'yo, shall we take a walk?”
It is said that in the oldest anthology of Japanese poems, "Man'yo-shu" (The Anthology of Myriad Leaves), many poems were composed about a place called Hagiwara in Ichinomiya, which from ancient times has been a famous place for bush clover (Hagi). In light of this history, monuments engraved with poems were erected in 1957 (Showa 32) and the park was named Man'yo Park. A new monument to commemorate the name of the new Reiwa era was erected in February 2020.
In early June the Hana-Shobu (Japanese Iris) Festival is held.
