Kimimachi-zaka Prefectural Nature Parkきみまち阪県立自然公園

Park / Green Space

This park is located in Kotsunagi, Futatsui-machi, Noshiro City. The name Kimimachi-zaka was bestowed on the area by Emperor Meiji when he visited it during an imperial tour of the Tohoku region. There is an anecdote about the emperor receiving a letter sent by the empress out of concern about his long journey while he stayed in the area. The park features a stone monument commemorates the rest the Emperor took in the area, and an additional monument is inscribed with the waka poem included in the empress' letter. The park also features the Koibumi Shrine, a mailbox for love letters, a gallery, a cafe, and more. Visitors can enjoy scenery created by Byobu Rock and the area's seasonal nature, such as cherry blossoms in the spring.

          Akita Areas


          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.
