A Park where Castle Ruins Rest beneath 2,000 Proudly Blooming Cherry Blossoms.
This park is known as the location of Takiyama Castle, a fort owned by the Hojo clan, who were prominent 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.
Within the park, about 2,000 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.
Another attractive feature of the park are the various open spaces nestled among the trees, providing a place for relaxation and leisure.
About 2,000 cherry trees beautifully bloom in the spring here.
The castle ruins tell the story of Japan’s Warring States period.
The view from the top of the hill, which overlooks as far as Sayama Hills, is wonderful.
