  • It is a historic site of Morioka Castle was the residence of the nanbu clan. In the garden is a fine stone castles in was recalled. Spring seems to be cherry blossom. Is a place of relaxation in the city, to walk just right.

  • Castle Park, the Nambu clan. Stone wall remains relatively well, but of course not building castles is also quite, also trees feel the history tree. Excellent, even the air feels good. It happens in time for the autumn, but early in the morning come hope.

  • This is the place of ruins of Morioka castle. It was perfectly destroyed so we cann't see anything of the castle. I mean this place is not suitable to feel the castle but it's good to understand how the castle was designed. This place is not far from Morioka station, I think most people can go there by walk.
  • Great variety of beautiful autumn foliage. Trees all labelled in English.
  • Nice park with walls the main castle remnants. Pleasant place to walk around.
  • Lovely little park full of hidden gardens and paths. The benches near the castle donjon monument provide nice views of the city, and the people like to strike up conversation or at least nod politely.
  • Quiet place for a morning stroll. The entire park is actually quite big with many trees and fresh air around.

Where to stay in Morioka

Look to the main train station for the most modern accommodations Morioka, with popular business hotels offering simple rooms, restaurants, and pools. Farther to the east, things get a little more characterful and atmospheric in traditional Japanese ryokans. Riverside options draw lots of visitors, while side-street guesthouses and hostels provide good options for budget-conscious travelers.
