A park of pristine forest and historic remains
A popular sight is the stone-walled keyhole-shaped ancient tomb of Kunimiyama. Clap your hands under the stairs in the ring-shaped area of the tomb， and hear the echoing sounds of a roaring dragon reverberate back from the large stone above. On the first Sunday of November the Tempyo Imoni Festival is held here serving home-style Imoni soup to 3，000 guests. The soup is made with local produce including dried gourd strips， taro roots and leeks in a huge pot measuring 2.5 metres across.

This area boasts evocative historical buildings and townscapes, such as the Ashikaga School, known for being the oldest school in Japan, and Kura no Machi, a district where buildings from the mid-19th century, a time when the area prospered as a commercial district, still stand. At Ashikaga Flower Park, you can see 350 blooming wisteria flowers, flowing downward from above, creating a world of enchantment.
