Event

Ueno Park is a park centered round Ueno Pond, located in the Higashi-Honmachi of Shobara City, Hiroshima Prefecture. Within the Park there is an athletics stadium, grass lawns, a sports ground, etc. Ueno Park is a popular spot for cherry blossom viewing, and has been included in the list of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots in Japan; in the area around the pond, around 600 Yoshino cherry trees come into flower, making for a truly spectacular sight. During the “Shobara Sakura Monogatari” festival in April, the cherry trees are lit up using paper lanterns, enabling visitors to enjoy what is often said to be the most beautiful illuminated cherry tree spectacle in Western Japan. The cherry blossom is at its best in early April each year. Toilets, shops, and free parking available.

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
