While it lacks the color or individual attractions of other attractions, the Sugar Industry Culture Park where the museum is located offers a tranquil setting in which to casually take in some important history.

This place was started by the Japanese in the late 1800's and continued until the seventies. It was quite interesting.

Great ice cream in the hot sunny day I love the red bean ice cream. There was someone signing at the eating area.
