A park situated on a small hill with a view of the city located in Isa City, Kagoshima Prefecture. Famous for its “1,000” cherry trees and two-kilometer-long avenue of cherries, the park was selected for inclusion in a list of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots in 1990. During the peak blooming period, the park is lit up at night with over 1,000 paper lanterns, giving visitors the chance to enjoy beautiful views of cherry blossoms both during the day and in the evening. Facilities include a vast natural grass lawn, children’s square, and playground, and the park bustles with visitors year-round. In addition, the park grounds encompass Tadamoto Shrine, a Shinto shrine dedicated to the Shimazu clan’s greatest military commander, the mighty Niiro Tadamoto; a poem-inscribed monument to Tadamoto can also be found in the park.

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
