Facilities of Waraku-kai's connection

The Hill of the "Soleil" The staccato beat of the taiko echoes across the “Hill of the Soleil“ (Nagai Uminote Park), a park that has been made to resemble Provence in Southern France. This park is located on a cape with commanding views of Sagami Bay, Mt. Fuji and the Shonan coast. The park's hot-springs with their open-air bathing pools are favored by Noboru Tanaka, the artistic director of Waraku-kai SHOU.
