My micro scooter was very handy when I moved from Kairokoen back to town. There is also a tartan lane for joggers. Bicycles can be rented for a complete round of the lake. The Ibaraki Museum of Modern Art sits right next to the park.

Walked the length of the lake back from karakuien park to mito jr station. Pleasant walk and even though it was the end of Sakura season. The trees were still beautiful. We even saw swans nesting and saw their eggs ! Great spring leisure walk

There was not much to do in Mito; but spending an afternoon around Lake Senba was lovely nonetheless. Watching the sun go down was just as exhilarating as always.
