Odawara Castle Park (小田原城址公園)

Event

Odawara Castle Park is a Park laid out around the restored Tenshu-kaku (Main Tower) of the former Odawara Castle, which was completed in 1960; it has been designated as a National Historic Site and as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. There are around 320 Yoshino cherry trees in the Park; the sight of their pinkish-red petals drifting in the breeze, set against the backdrop of the Tenshu-kaku tower and of the castle moat, is truly magnificent. The “Odawara Cherry Blossom Festival” is held from late March through into early April when the cherry blossom is at its best; visitors can enjoy the magical sight of cherry trees lit up by paper lanterns, and the annual children’s procession. Toilets and shops are available and there is paid parking nearby. The nearest station is Odawara Station.

          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.
