Century old tree landmark at Bijuru Park

Date Posted: 2008-02-07

Bijuru Park isnít too big, has few pieces of playground equipment, and lacks parking.

It has character though, offering a mystique not found in many area parks. Bijuru means shrine, and Bijuru Park faces toward Awase shrine. The view is terrific, and the connection to nearby Awase shrine adds an aura to visiting, relaxing and meditating in the parkís open lounge area.

There is playground equipment at Bijuru Park, including swings, a slide chute and a sandbox. No rest room facilities are inside the park.

Visitors flock to Awase shrine, particularly during the annual September 9th Shrine Festival, to pray for good health, safety and happiness, and good harvests. Couples wanting to have a child often visit and pray for intervention.

To visit Bijuru Park, exit Kadena Gate 2 and drive straight through Takahara intersection until you see the San A clothing shop on the left. Pass the Sa-A shop and continue straight past Mosburger Awase branch until reaching Gabusoka Soba Restaurant. The park is directly across from the restaurant, and the Awase shrine is next to the park.
