Bringing fresh spring water from the mountains to the valley, the Takamori Yusui Tunnel Park is a site to behold. Not only does the tunnel transport water, but the two kilometer tunnel has seasonal decorations like tanabata lanterns during the summer and Christmas during the winter. Local schools, businesses and government offices try to outdo one another in a marvelous display.
Although I visited the tunnel during October, the tanabata displays which featured flowers and crops, as well as unique characters like Funahsi, Kumamon and Totoro were still up.
To view the Christmas tree decorations, please visit this photo story.
It's just a 10 minute walk from Takamori Station on the Minami Aso Line so be sure to check it out!
