This famous park contains over two thousand Yama-Zakura cherry trees.
The natural beauty of this park is symbolic of Rokunohe. It is well known as a natural park for the town tree, the Yama-Zakura (Cherry Tree.) During the 'O-Hanami' (flower viewing) season of spring, over 2,000 cherry trees can be seen in full blossom. To coincide with the Spring Festival
, special boat rides are also available in this period. Throughout the year fishing and camping are permitted on park grounds. During winter white swans also visit, making Tateno Park a place popular with visitors from as far as outside the prefecture all year round.
Towada Kokusai Country Club（十和田国際カントリークラブ）
Established 1964, this is the oldest golf course in Aomori and one of the
oldest in Japan. As there is relatively little snow on the Pacific Ocean
side of the prefecture, this is the first course to open after the winter
snows have melted. Whilst playing golf spectacular views of the Hakkoda
Mountain range can be enjoyed. Every year over 30,000 people from both
within and outside the prefecture visit to play. Telephone: 0176-55-3106
Shrines hold an important place in Japan, with most people visiting at
least a few times a year. The biggest shrine in Rokunohe, the Kumano Shrine,
is also the most well known. It was constructed in 844 to worship Izanagi
and Izanami, two gods that had a hand in creating ancient Japan. It is
located a short walk from Tateno Park.
Former Shibusawa Family Mansion（旧渋沢邸）
The Former Shibusawa Family Mansion was the main residence of Shibusawa Eiichi (1840-1931), a leading figure in the development of modern day Japan. Originally located in Sanda, Tokyo, after WW2 the (former) Ministry of Finance took possession of the mansion. Former Shibusawa Family butler and previous manager of Komaki Onsen Yukio Sugiyama purchased the mansion and moved it to its current location in the Komaki Hot Springs Aomori-ya complex. The involvement of distinguished architects in the extensions and improvements, and the fact it is the former residence of the Shibusawa Family, leaders in the development of the modern Japanese business world, the mansion is a building of both historical and architectural value. The building was registered in the Rokunohe Town Heritage List on July 24, 2009, and opened for viewing from April, 2011. For more information, contact Komaki Hot Springs Aomori-ya

Former Tomabechi Residence（旧苫米地家）
Of all the houses along the Oirase River in Rokunohe, the former Tomabechi
residence is the oldest. There are no documents left from the period of
its construction, but by comparing its construction and building techniques
to those of other buildings in the Kamikita-District, it is believed to
have originated in the latter half of the Edo-Period (1603-1867). There
is a special 'Shiki-dai' entrance on the front left side of the building,
the incorporation of which was limited strictly to the Samurai class to
show the status of the occupants.
The former Tomabechi residence was selected as a town heritage building
on November 30, 1992. It was transferred from its original location in
March 2005 and opened officially on the 27th of April of the same year
at a cost of approximately US$6million. The internal floor space is 182.26m2.
It is located directly opposite the Maple Community Centre
9am - 4pm Tuesday to Sunday. The residence is closed yearly between 28th of December to the 4th of January. Entry is free.
