We went to this park just to enjoy a walk, but we're delighted to find the local petanque club having a friendly game. My husband was loaned some boules and invited to play. Petanque is the international language since our Japanese is nonexistent. Such a nice group! It was a highlight of our day in Tokushima.
Chuo Park is an oasis of calm and beauty at the edge of a bustling city. The grounds are extensive with traditional Japanese gardens throughout. Trees, hundreds of years old, have been manicured to mimic the most beautiful aspects of nature.
