At the 1st floor entrance of Chichibu City Hall and the 1st floor of the adjacent Rekishi Bunka Densho-kan (Central Public Hall), there is an exhibition corner about Chichibu Geopark. Tourist information is available at the Tourism Division Helpdesk.
On the south side of the Chichibu City Hall is the Chichibu Park. This park has a mysterious small shrine where there is a pair of tori. This is a sacred place where, on the night of the Chichibu Yomatsuri (Night Festival) held on December 3, a ritual is carried out after six floats along with a procession from the shrine gather together.
There is a legend that, at the Chichibu Yomatsuri (Night Festival), the goddess of Chichibu Shrine and the god of Mount Buko secretly date together once a year, and they meet at this location. At the center of the building is what is known as Kamenoko Ishi (Turtle Stone), and it is a reiju (sacred beast) like a turtle called Gembu on which the goddess sits.
