We just loved this park. We were there for the full bloom of the cherry blossoms, and it was just glorious. It's bigger than it seems, with lots of beautiful paths lined with cherry blossoms. I'd imagine it's a lovely park in Summer and Autumn,...More
We arrived quite late at Yamagata, but fortunately this park was illuminated during sakura season and location is within walking distance from Yamagata Station. It was our first sakura experience, since we missed it in Tokyo, and even in Sendai. But glad we made it...More

It is perfect for those...More
