After spending nearly two hours at the museum we headed to the Botanical Gardens. It was supposed to start raining at three, so we had a few hours left.

After seeing numerous Japanese Botanical Gardens this one was a bit underwelming. It's probaly the time of year when nothing blossoms. Still, it was nice to stroll around. Close by is one of the 5 Gates that surrounded the city when they were built in 1884.

228 Peace Memorial Park.

From the gate it was only a short walk to the 228 Peace Memorial Park.

The park was created to remember the victims of the February 28 Incident of 1947.
