      The tour starts at the small car park directly on the banks of the Main and leads first to the observation tower in the bird sanctuary. From here you can see the more than 200 pairs of gray herons that have their clumps in the hillside forest near Roßstadt. In order to be able to follow their flights on the slope, but also to their stay in the shallow riparian zone of the Main really well, however, a pair of binoculars is required!
      Then it goes over the Main flood plains to Roßberg and up to the Steigerwald panorama trail in the direction of Dippach. Although this route is heavily fortified over a long distance, it offers a magnificent view of the 'Lands around the Main'. From Dippach it is only a few steps back to the parking lot.

      The small circular route starts just before the Valzner Weiher, leads through the wetland on Hutgraben to Holzweiher, from there to Russenwiese and back to the Valzner Weiher. Since the roads are in good condition and there are no gradients, the tour is very easy to handle. A recommendable refreshments (beer garden) offers the restaurant "Bienenheim" near the start and finish point.

      The circular walk leads through a beautiful, varied landscape, which is also of cultural and historical interest.

      For lovers of lofty or idyllic landscapes, this chain of small ponds may be a disappointment; but other visitors can find something interesting (even in winter) - not only because of the many waterfowl, which you can observe during a walk.

      Jizo: According to Buddhist teachings, Jizo is a bodhisattva, an "enlightened one" (roughly comparable to the Christian helpers). He is considered the companion of the dead in the underworld, but also has the function of judge of the deceased. Jizo is portrayed as a monk with a shaved head, often wearing a red cap and red bib. As a companion of the dead, Jizo, which is particularly popular in Japan, is also responsible for the children who died prematurely, were killed or aborted (the so-called "water children"). The figure has then - as can be seen in the long rows of the Tokyo Tower - a childlike expression and the size of a child. Very often Jizo is set up (mostly by the parents) together with small windmills, food, drinks or toys; sometimes he even wears children's clothes. That may sometimes seem strange to us. From a purely aesthetic point of view such figures are certainly of no great value; nevertheless, they often have a very touching effect - especially when time has left their deep mark on them.

      Tokyo Tower: The Tokyo Tower, built in 1958, is very clearly oriented towards the Paris Eiffel Tower; At 332 meters, however, he is about 8 meters taller than his role model. From the second platform at 250 meters, you have a great view of the city and far beyond. Striking are the relatively many (Buddhist) temples and (Shinto) shrines that are still found nearby. Illuminated at night, the tower transforms into a huge red-flaming structure.Please note: The (public!) Paths used here can often not be displayed with "komoot"; the marking is therefore only an approximation to the actually chosen way! However, you can definitely find the three important places: Zojoji Temple with entrance gate and the numerous Jizo figures on the right side / the wooded section of the Shiba Park between Temple and Tokyo Tower with three further Jizo representations / the viewing platform the Tokyo Tower with a fantastic panoramic view.
      Of course, the mentioned deficiency does not allow an exact positioning of the pictures.

      The tour leads to some of the most interesting highlights of Yokohama. It starts in Chinatown - accessible via the Motomachi-Chukagai subway station; much nicer is the approach with the "Sea Bass" on the water! (See "Traveling in Yokohama I" komoot.de/tour/13628871). The tour ends at Sakuragicho station - there are train and subway connections.
      In the illustrations one should consider that Komoot can not capture certain way types; in this case, the photos were not exactly positionable.

      The Sea Bass is a type of water taxi that - after a fixed timetable (about every 15 minutes) and with stops at four moorings - drives along the Bayside from Yokohama.

      Kamakura is a city of not quite 175,000 inhabitants southwest of Tokyo. She has a great cultural heritage - especially since she was the governing city of Japan from 1192 to 1333.
      The path leads from the Big Buddha (Daibutsu) to the Hase Temple (Hase-dera) in Kamakura.
      Some further explanations can be found in the highlights.

      Of course, this is not the place to go hiking - and you do not even need to talk about mountain biking ... An impressive highlight for any visitor to Yokohama is the cemetery! For here the strangers, the Gaijin, had an extraterritorial area since the middle of the 19th century. And here they could also bury their dead according to the Christian rite. So the place is a vivid testimony of Japanese history. At the same time, he also shows how nature recaptures its own space step by step.
      Hours: On weekends and national holidays in the months of March to December.
