Morioka Castle Ruins Park (Iwate Park)盛岡城跡公園(岩手公園)

Event

A park where visitors can enjoy beautiful seasonal scenery, Iwate Park was built on the site of Morioka Castle, one of the largest plains castles with a stone wall in the Kanto region and all areas north. The park is a renowned destination for spring cherry blossoms but visitors are also encouraged to come in fall when the leaves on the park's maples, gingkos, tulip trees, and Japanese zelkovas turn colors. The exquisite contrast of the solemn stone wall of the ruined castle and the surrounding field of vivid autumn foliage is beautiful and continues to enchant throngs of visitors year after year. The view from the outer citadel area is particularly picturesque and popular.

          Iwate Main Areas

          around-area-map

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
