This park is located on the ruins of a castle constructed in the early 17th century. The moat in the entrance area is filled with giant water lilies, and the leafy park has lots of cherry and azalea trees. The whole castle was destroyed during the Meiji Restoration but one watch tower was reconstructed in 1989 to serve as a museum and observation deck overlooking the city. There are also beautiful ponds and a shrine in the park.

Nice park to walk through. At the moment (Feb 2020) there's a lot of construction in the area and it's quite noisy from this. Regardless, the park is well set out and pleasant to walk through. Looks like some of the Iris bulbs are starting to bloom which will be a spectacular sight. Some of the structures could do with TLC as they are not in the best state of repair. Definitely worth a visit.

22-Feb, was raining, pretty much nothing to see at this period, construction going on, ponds nearby is empty as it is winter. Came here to see the Geisha. Am sure it is a better/beautiful park at another day/season?

A lovely park with lots of history. You can see the mountains that border over half of the city from here.

This was a lovely park to visit in late autumn: predictably beautiful landscape design, graceful human structures, and a lovely sense of calm. And the colors. Were. Incredible.

Beautiful park. Well maintained and organised. Walking distance from the JR Station.
