Banner Plaza

This place is called "Banner Plaza" because of the large banners visible from the highway which serve as signs for the Takai Kozan Memorial. It is a shared parking lot for Obusedo, the town of Obuse, and the Nagano Shinkin Bank.

This parking lot was built with mutual sharing in mind, since on the weekends few people use the bank but many people visit the museum. Sometimes cars are kept out and the plaza used for events, and it was built after researching Italian plazas.
