Nothing much around the area. The pagoda was beautiful in photos. Worth to visit for quick photo snaps. Just snap and go.

It’s difficult to miss this 5 tiered red pagoda as you walk around the island. We couldn’t help being attracted to it. We climbed a flight of steps to reach it. Since it was Sakura, there were cherry trees in bloom in the area making...More

This is a nice place to stop by for a quick photo. If you're lucky you might be able to get some nearby cherry blossoms in your shot.
