Inuyama in Japan
Inuyama has an estimated population of 73,247 and the city lies along the edge of Aichi Prefecture, separated from neighboring Gifu Prefecture by the Kiso River. There are a number of famous attractions in and around the city. The most famous attraction is Inuyama castle on a 40m rise overlooking the Kiso river. The Kiso river also has some very picturesque rapids upstream of the castle. These rapids and the rock formations are called the Nihon Rhine after the Rhine river in Germany, and boat tours are available. Cormorant fishing on the Kiso river is also done, although nowadays almost exclusively for tourists. Other things to do during free time: visiting the Urakuen tea garden used for tea ceremonies, or an anthropological open-air museum/amusement park called Little World Museum of Man, containing a large number of buildings built according to the native style of over 22 countries. Another amusement park is the Japan Monkey park, with different species of monkeys and other entertainment.
