Senshu Park, Akita

3.7
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.

  • This is a castle park pretty close to Akita station. Attractive in all seasons even in the middle of winter. If you go at the right time they have winter lighting events.  more »
  • Castle Hill on the mountain rather than in in moderately sized and graded, well maintained road, is perfect for strolling. Many trees and you can relax. Holiday morning has many residents walk or jog.

  • Quiet park with views out over Akita city. Climbing the reconstructed castle turret had some more history, but note that it is Japanese only.
  • Gentle slope is perfect to give a walk. Birds are little bit disturbing sometimes But its unique atmosphere makes everything worth.
  • Lovely park.
  • beautiful
  • It's worth to be there, walking and sightseeing
