Things to see near the Memorial Hall
- Takasegawa Ichino-Funairi
- This was a busy transportation hub from the Edo period to the middle of the Taisho period. Here, Takase boats came and went, distributing supplies. Some of the atmosphere of those days is still preserved at this historical site.
- Takase River
- The poetry of weeping willows gently blowing in the breeze along the Takase River was made famous in "Takase Bune," a novel by Ogai Mori.
- Kiyamachi-Nijo Area
- This block was central to industrial promotion at the time, and was a birthplace of modern scientific technology in Japan.
- Kamo River
- The Kamo River flows through the city of Kyoto, watching over its history to this day. Its riverbanks are popular with local residents as places of rest and relaxation. The Takase River mentioned above gets its supply of water from the Kamo River.
