Izushi Castle ruins (出石城跡)

Event

The ruins of Izushi Castle, once the administrative headquarters of the former Izushi Domain, are located in Izushi Town, Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture. The site is famous for its sweeping view of the Izushi Town area, which still retains traces of its former castle town glory, and its beautiful cherry blossoms in spring. Around late March, Yoshino cherries and double-flowered cherries at the site come into bloom, adding a splash of color to the castle’s stone wall and rebuilt turret. The local Cherry Blossom Festival is held here for almost a month, when the trees are in peak bloom, and during that time a variety of events are held, including a contest to see who can eat the most soba noodles, a local specialty. Toilets available. Nearby municipal paid parking available.

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
