A Park where Castle Ruins Rest beneath 5,000 Proudly Blooming Cherry Blossoms
This park is known as the location of Takiyama Castle, where the Hojo samurai clan flourished during the Warring States period (1467-1568).
Now designated as a national historical monument, this park is equipped with a strolling path around the castle ruins. While walking around, sense the history contained in these ruins, surrounded by the bounties of nature.
Within the park, about 5,000 cherry trees have been planted, mainly of the Somei-yoshino and Yama-zakura varieties. With these trees blossoming on the slope covering an imperial burial mound, it is famous as one of the leading cherry-blossom viewing spots in the city.
With open space allowing for free ball play, this park attracts a lot of visitors looking for a place to relax.
About 5,000 cherry trees beautifully bloom in the spring here.
The castle ruins tell the story of Japan’s Warring States period.
From the top of the hill, take in city views with a sweep of the eye.
