Magnificent views of the cherry blossom season here in Okazaki Park. The views are plentiful and dazzling from every angle. You will have a hard time putting your camera or phone down and soak in the atmosphere.
Not only are the trees well lit at night, but the castle serves as the central beacon and landmark. There is a stunning red footbridge that looks absolutely gorgeous up close or from afar.
During the cherry blossom season, there are carnival style game and food vendors lined up everywhere on the park grounds. We had no shortage of tasty snacks, and entertaining games for the kids. Who am I kidding... Adults can join in on the fun as well.
Several canals and creeks run through or around the park. The lights and sights reflect off the water to create a postcard scenery.
I wish I had found this park earlier. I will definitely want to come back again.

Okazaki park is one of the most beautiful parks in the area. There is beautiful foliage: colorful in fall, extremely beautiful in spring. It has one of the most stunning displays of cherry blossoms in Aichi prefecture. There is a lovely tea house and it is a very nice place to spend the day.

Castle, tea house, restaurants, shrine, cherry blossoms, huge wisteria. Every season is good to visit. April and May are often very busy for cherry blossom viewing and wisteria, which makes for a fun time. Summer fireworks are also a draw. Take in the fall maples and matcha if you can.
