Eboshiyama Park烏帽子山公園


Eboshiyama Park, located on a hill which has a panoramic view of Yonezawa Plateau in Akayu, Nanyo City, Yamagata Prefecture, has been selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. About 1,000 cherry blossom trees, including Yoshino cherry trees, Edo-higanzakura cherry trees and weeping cherry trees, which are said to be more than 100 years old and called Eboshiyama senbonzakura (the one thousand cherry trees) come into full bloom from mid to late April every year. The whole mountain is tinted light pink when the trees are in full bloom, and many viewers visit. The park holds the Akayu Hot Spring Sakura Festival around mid-April to early May. During the festival, there are illuminated cherry blossoms as well as a range of events such as a parade. Toilets and shops available.

          Yamagata Areas


          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
