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.

    Kubota Castle is a large park. In the moat was just filled with Lotus flowers. I think in the park pond, shrine, Tower Museum and stroll to the best. Guide if you wish just seems to guide me.

    ここは散歩に最適です。広い城址公園です。中には久保田城があり、中を見学できます。入場料は100円なので是非入ってください。エレベータで4階まで行くと回廊があり、そこから秋田市内が一望できます。男鹿半島や日本海も観れますよ。 This park is good for walking. The park is former Kubota castle. We can enter the castle...  more »

    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.
