Tottori Castle Ruins (鳥取城跡・久松公園)
This park—located in Higashi Town, Tottori City, Tottori Prefecture—was constructed around the ruins of Tottori Castle, known for the starvation strategy employed by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. A great spot for cherry blossoms, it was selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots, and sees over 400 Yoshino cherry and Sato-zakura cherry trees bloom every spring. These are best viewed from late March to mid-April. Many visitors come during peak season, when a sakura festival is held, shops are set up, and the trees are illuminated with bonbori lamps. Toilets, shops and parking (21 parking spaces) available.
