World Maple Park ‘Hirara’

World Maple Park Hirara

As the name shows, the park has over 3,000 maple trees with 1,200 different species from around the world. Used to be an elementary school, this beautifully restored old schoolhouse has been revived as a library, café, and art studio. These maple trees look most beautiful in early summer when the trees start to burst into leaves.
