I went there because there was planning of Hawaii star in the summer. Because it is Katsushika of facility, it was cheap. You think I've sat in the seat to be more in easy-to-read. It was really beautiful! The lower floor, there is a history museum of Katsushika, it was interesting because some tools that have been used to the home and a long time ago reproduce the Showa. There was quite impressive. the parking is okay
