Senshu Park, Akita

3.9
Garden · Nature / Park
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.

  • Swirling snow on a dark landscape, Nothing blooms, the trees sleep, Tied against the weight of snow. No better time to enjoy it alone.  more »
  • This is a large and beautiful park in the middle of Akita City. It is very important that you have to spare enough time for visiting this park. I recommend that you should walk from Akita Station...  more »
