Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Tohoku / Akita Prefecture / Akita / Senshu 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.

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...

Loved this park and the castle ruins too! Beautiful views of Akita City and enjoyed walking around in the snow.
It's not the best place to visit in the middle of summer but since I'm only in Akita to catch the Kanto Matsuri, this seems like a good place to explore within minutes from the train station. Of course, I was made to regret my decision because the weather was scorching and as I made my way to the park, I was greeted by the insane screeching of cicadas. I was told this would be a beautiful place for cherry blossom viewing in spring (and I have no doubts about that). But maybe in summer, it's more advisable to give this park a miss. Not even the sight of the Osumiyagura turret / guard post is of any consolation... And the lotus littered moat? Let's just say it kind of looks like a total mess...
