The property is surrounded by the rich natural environment of ”Rakusai”, including Ryoanji Temple, a Zen sect temple founded in the Muromachi period and famous for its rock garden; Ninnaji Temple, a World Heritage site famous for its late-blooming Omuro cherry blossoms; and Narabigaoka. Visitors can enjoy the changing scenery of the seasons woven by nature throughout the year: cherry blossoms in spring, fresh greenery in summer, autumn leaves in fall, and snow in winter.

Although the area is often visited by many tourists from Japan and abroad, it is designated as a "Category 1 exclusive district for low-rise residential buildings" in order to protect the good living environment of low-rise residences. The area is required to consider the surrounding environment and harmonize with the townscape to preserve the blessed nature.
