Senshu Park, Akita

3.9
#1 of 70 in Parks in Akita Prefecture
Built on castle grounds, Senshu Park invites with its serene landscape and historical value. The wooden gate and old guard post remain from the old citadel as a reminder of some other, ancient time. Stroll around, then relax by the lake and admire the lotuses blooming on its surface. Famous for its valley of 800 cherry trees, the park hosts an annual spring festival with live music and delicious street food that attracts people from all around the world. Rich golden tones color the park during fall, while in winter, it turns into a picturesque scene covered in snow. Climb to the top for a view over the city. Put Senshu Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Akita trip planner .

  • there much to see in the park but be prepared to walk a lot and some of it up hill. It was beautiful with the fall colors.  more »
  • There was an Akita dog contact place, and i was interested, so when I went there, there was a cute Akita dog. The owner was by my side, and I was able to touch it a little. I was impressed to be able to take a picture with you. The park is quite large, so it's just right for a walk, and there's a rest area and a small souvenir shop in the park, so we could have a little tea.

  • Beautiful park right in the heart of Akita City... Short walk from Akita Station. Can get quite busy at times but many peaceful areas to chill out if that is what you are looking for. Great spot for people watching.
