Hoshida Park and its Suspended Bridge (Hoshi no Branco)
This was our first outing after moving into our new rented flat.
At the end of October 2020, we took the train to Kisaichi station and from there we walked 40 minutes on a small pathway along a creek, to reach the park. We really enjoyed walking in nature. We rested for a while, drinking some water and tea, and then we went on into the forest, after climbing and climbing on small pathways paved with wooden stairs, we arrived at the suspended bridge. It was breathtaking. Beautiful and majestuous.
Hoshida Park is a 105 hectare wide natural park located inside the Quasi-National Park. The panoramic scenery from the suspended bridge, called "Hoshi no Branco (Star Swing)", is just spectacular, and the hiking courses set up in the park are also ideal for forest hiking or bird watching.
Hoshi no Branco (Star Swing) has a total length of 280m (918ft) and a ground height of 50m (164ft). It is one of the longest suspended bridge in Japan. From the bridge you can overlook the forest and watch the superb view of Hoshida Park in each season.
There is also a climbing wall for beginners and advanced climbers.
