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.

  • GW encountered classic Senshu Park, finally traveling to Akita to. Cherry blossom season has ended so crowds of children is also sparse. Volunteer Park Guide is a little touch of 手持無沙汰. Now the double cherry blossoms, flowers and fresh green or not. And the biggest azalea flowers. Fool around with my garden while admiring the flowers in the relaxed atmosphere of supreme happiness. If 30 minutes is a key to view please visit by all means.

  • It is a park at the Akita Castle walk 5 minutes from Akita station West exit. It was crowded with people enjoying cherry blossoms in late day visit. I wonder if Miss sake preparation only restored during Park, corner turret.

  •  At walking distance from JR Akita station, museums and the castle is a large park. The bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring may slope somewhat crowded with many people.

  • 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.
  • It’s a lot of raven here.
  • Quiet park with views out over Akita city. Climbing the reconstructed castle turret had some more history, but note that it is Japanese only.
