Kaizu is home to Kisosansen Park. This is the location at which the Nagara, Ibi, and Kiso rivers meet. It is a great place to relax, enjoy outdoor sporting activities, or view the yearly flower festival held there. Because of the confluence of these three rivers and the area's geography, Kaizu was prone to flooding in ancient Japan. A panaramic view of the area can be viewed from an observation tower located in Kisosansen Park.
