Kuwana-castle was originally praised as "a famous castle of sea route."
After the castle demolished the place has been known as "Kyuka park," a place for relaxation.
In spring approximately 450 cherry blossom trees such as Somei-yoshino, weeping cherry and wild cherry will blooming in the park.
During cherry-blossom festival the trees are illuminated and we can enjoy watching and relaxing under the cherry blossom trees at night.
The best period to go to the park is from the end of March to the early April.
Enjoy and feel relaxed in the mood filled with full-bloomed cherry blossom.
