Senshu Park千秋公園

Park / Green Space

This park in Akita City, Akita Prefecture was established to maintain the inner and outer citadel of Kubota Castle. It was designed by landscape architect Yasuhei Nagaoka. The remains of the Omonogashira-gobansho (a guard post where the samurai on guard duty and in charge of opening and closing the gates were stationed) and the restored Osumiyagura turret and front gate offer vestiges of the past, and these are popular as photo spots. At a shop in the outer citadel one can try delicious dumpling called Senshu Dango. The lush garden is famous for its cherry blossoms and azaleas and is consequently a popular spot for blossom viewing during the cherry blossom festival and azalea festival each spring.

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
