Approximately 1,600 cherry trees reach in full bloom around the moat of Goryokaku Park. The contrast view of cherry blossoms and some mountains covered with snow in the background is simply stunning.

As a historical site it's underwhelming compared to comparable castles around Japan. Surprisingly good place for birding though and walk around is nice. Went in Summer and it was extremely hot, would probably be better in other seasons.

Beautiful park that's great for running or a nice stroll. Inside the park, you can learn about the local history of the area as well as experience its natural beauty which is lovely in all seasons.

Very nice park. The building in the middle is nostalgic but built in 2010.
