Kikko Park

Park / Green Space
Kikko Park is a multi-function park on what was formerly the site of the residence of the Kikkawa family who were the rulers of the Iwakuni Domain, and also the site of the former Yamaguchi Prefectural Iwakuni Upper Secondary School; it has been selected for inclusion in a list of the “Top 100 Most Historic Parks in Japan.” Several buildings of historical importance are located in or near the Park, including the Kikko Shrine, the Ema-do hall “Kin-un-kaku” (a shrine building where votive pictures are hung), and the Mekata Family residence (an Edo period samurai family home), which has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property. The Park is a wonderful place to view seasonal flowers and tree foliage. Kikko Park is around 20 minutes by bus from Iwakuni Station on the JR Sanyo Main Line.
