Nakamura Castle Ruins (Tamematsu Park)為松公園(中村城跡)
This public park is located near the Shimanto Historical Museum. It was the former site of Nakamura Castle (also known as Tamematsu Castle), which was built by Tamematsu during the Onin War. The park on a hill where you can see the townscape of Nakamura brings to mind Kyoto and extends in a square pattern, and is known as a popular cherry blossom viewing spot. Planted with approximately 500 Yoshino cherry trees, you can enjoy them when in full bloom from late March to early April, and also fantastic night cherry blossoms when paper lanterns are illuminated during the Shimanto River Flower and Cherry Blossom festivals.

Kochi Main Areas
The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
