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.

  • Was not able to go inside but was worth the walk. Very tricky too get to in winter but I was glad I made the effort.  more »
  • Hill station because it had never been tried and the moat on the left side, of the CARP have seen as of being good exercise will go far as a castle

  • Guests can enjoy 10 minutes even when you walk right from the station near, things to do and no time. Is at the center of Akita city, nature can loose the rest. Good views of the Hill, is easy to walk off as a sneaker shoes.

  • There are two museums taking us through a tour of the history of Akita. The entrance fee is a mere 100 yen. There are beautiful parks which are spacious with numerous trees. There is a pond with beautiful creepers. Autumn colours are a silver lining. There is also a children’s park. Restrooms are available. There is a small store for drinks and snacks. One of the museums has an observation tower. Though only 2 storeys tall, the view of the city is beautiful. The park is walkable from the Akita station, 10-15 minutes. The art museum is opposite to the entrance of this park.
  • Fantastic Park. Highly recommended in the fall. Amazing views of the city and a good hike.
  • A nice quiet park in Akita. Great to send some time in peace.
  • 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.
