Genjiyama Park (源氏山公園)

Event

A park filled with natural beauty and which harnesses the mountain terrain on which it is situated. The park is located in the Genjiyama area in Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture, so named for its connecting to the “Genji” or Minamoto clan. The park is home to a seated statue of the historic figure Minamoto no Yoritomo and also has a grass lawn as well as a hiking course which leads to Kotoku-in Temple in Kita Kamakura. The park is also a renowned spot for cherry blossom viewing. In spring, some 270 Yoshino cherry and other cherry tree varieties come into beautiful bloom, and the park is visited by large numbers of people seeking to enjoy the sight. The best time to view the blossoms is generally from late March to mid-April. Some of the many highlights of the surrounding area include Kuzuharaoka-jinja Shrine and Zeniarai Benzaiten Ugafuku-jinja Shrine. Toilets available. No parking available.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
