  • This is a great cherry blossom viewing. I think where the cherry variety now in Japan Japan is rare. Stroll, guests can enjoy cherry blossoms. It is recommended to go at this time, Cherry Blossom Festival held during the golden week, so things.

  • Is a Castle located in Matsumae. Had become the residence of the Matsumae clan during the Edo period. Located on the Hill of the city, views are good.

  • 100 is one of the Castle. On the bus ride from JR kikonai station, 1 hour away, went to the sea along the way. And so blue and clear sea, very clean. I could this year is warmer and less snow, deep snow. Get off the bus and did not plow trail to the town, so I went on this fluffy snow. Castle on the hill overlooking the city. It was very slippery and narrow walkways slope at some places was frozen, so. No snow for the Castle, but got to the vestibular portion. You could see a magnificent gate with a tower. Way to come to the castle is also part of this garden is full of cherry trees. Several were planted, but nanden types. 100 City Hall in meijo stamp! Said I came, but were placed at the entrance. Snow Castle was, at the time of cherry blossoms is come.

  • One of the 100 famous castles. Despite the long way through bus, it was worth the time. It will be beautiful during sakura seasons.
  • My first visit to a Japanese castle and was worth seeing. Would like to see it during the Cherry blossom season.
  • This is a great castle!
  • I didn't go inside the palace, but the surrounding park is very beautiful indeed. I went there on a Monday evening and had the whole park to myself. Lots of tables and benches -- a fantastic location for a picnic.
  • Worth the trip to see the Sakura blooms, but its also nice in the winter and without the crowds to boot!
