Kitakami Tenshochi Park4.3
This park alongside the Kitakami River is well-known as a cherry-blossom viewing spot. The walking paths are lined with around 10,000 cherry trees of 150 different varieties, blooming from mid-April to early May. The most prominent is a 2km-long avenue starting from the Sango Bridge.
The park is considered one of top three cherry-viewing spots in the Tohoku region, together with Hirosaki in Aomori Prefecture and Kakunodate in Akita Prefecture. The park also hosts about 100,000 azalea trees which flourish after the cherry blossom season. Check out an open-door folklore museum and the memorial hall dedicated to a poet, Sato Hachiro.
