Beautiful Ogata-mura's Water and Greenery

Ogata-mura has become a tourist attraction in its own right. More or less in the center of the village is the spot where 40°N crosses 140°E; the only place in Japan where meridians and parallels with full decimal numbers intersect. Unique is the lowest mountain in Japan, which rises to a majestic height of exactly 0 meters above sea level and is called the "Ogata Fuji" because the real Mt. Fuji is only 3,776 meters (12,388 feet) higher.

For more relaxation you could take a look at South Pond Park, where all sorts of flowers bloom every season.
