Matsumae Park, located at the southernmost tip of Hokkaido, is a park surrounding a former feudal castle. Around 10,000 cherry trees, of 250 different species, blossom for nearly a month from late April. This park is well known as one of Japan's 100 Best Cherry Blossom Viewing Spots.

Matsumae Cherry Festival from April 29th to May 19th draws a huge crowd. The castle here is Hokkaido's only castle and some relics are Important Cultural Properties of Japan.

Went a few days ago. Managed to see the sakura trees, but not all were in full bloom. However it was a pleasant walk and there were other interesting things to see at the park. Parking was easy as there were signs everywhere. Paid 500 yen for parking.

3:30 hours bus ride from Hakodate makes it tough to reach. But the park with wonderful cherry blossoms still attracts a good turnout. The 3 ancient trees are really worth the trouble.
