Ueno Park (上野公園)
"This castle site park sprawls in front of Uenoshi Station on the Iga Line. Iga Ueno Castle, the park's symbol, is notable for its high stone walls built by Warring States period commander Todo Takatora. Due to the beauty of the white, three-tiered fortress, it is also known as Hakuho (""White Chinese Phoenix"") Castle. The park also has a variety of facilities brimming with history, including the Ninja Museum of Igaryu, which is filled with tricks such as secret doors and revolving walls; the Haiseiden, a building whose design was inspired by the traditional travel garments worn by famed haiku poet Matsuo Basho; and the Basho Memorial Museum. The Ninja Museum of Igaryu notably holds demonstrations of Iga-ryu ninja techniques and is a fun destination for everyone from history fans to small children. The park has also been planted with seasonal flowers and is a renowned destination for cherry blossom viewing in particular. In April when the cherries are in bloom, many people come to the park to take in their beauty."
