Senshu Park, Akita

(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Built on castle grounds, Senshu Park invites with its serene landscape and historical value. The wooden gate and old guard post remain from the old citadel as a reminder of some other, ancient time. Stroll around, then relax by the lake and admire the lotuses blooming on its surface. Famous for its valley of 800 cherry trees, the park hosts an annual spring festival with live music and delicious street food that attracts people from all around the world. Rich golden tones color the park during fall, while in winter, it turns into a picturesque scene covered in snow. Climb to the top for a view over the city. Plan to see Senshu Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Akita tourist route planner.

  • Akita Senshu Park, close to the JR Akita station, on foot 15 minutes is ideal for family vacations. If to take the train at the same station on weekdays, Akita city tourist information center (phone / 018-832-7941) is so useful. Park and historic old Kubota Castle, is famous in Japan, not only stone castles. In the Park. Flower Festival, one same Festival, tea room, at Akita Bell, shirokitoge, 胡月 pond, etc., all seasons fragrance scene is in the air all year round. Chiaki nomenclature is attached this name from any of thousands, hoping the long prosperity thousands. Also, from a few years ago, in one corner of the park opened "Akita maiko Theatre" and tea drinking bunch. Akita city has a bustling River anti-since ancient times, the maiko and Geisha, in very busy, to have disappeared is this kind job recently because of the recession. This spare, aimed at rethinking operated as owner, Akita beautiful young native people. Reservation is required to use this facility. Contact phone (018-827-3241) on weekdays is up 9:30-16:00. During the day, "lunch with tickets" offers a set at an additional cost.  You can also maiko and commemorative photo after that. A nice City Park and other parks, something different, say, might be.

  • So the locals as the Park of the castle is very well do not think. Snow spring is still fewer green for the low rating of tourists from other provinces is that I think there is blame.
