One of the largest in mainland Japan, the park is known for its 250,000 beautiful Shibazakura in bloom from mid-April to May, covering an area of 2.4 hectares. A must-see is the panoramic view of the floral carpet from the observatory, where various shades of red, white, mauve and pink lawn cherry blossoms form beautiful patterns. You can taste handmade soba noodles at the restaurant in the park. Local vegetables and Shibazakura plants are available at the farmer's market.
