Tsuyama Castle

Event
This park was created around the ruins of Tsuyama Castle—one of Japan’s Great Three Hill Castles—and its 45-meter-high stone wall still exists today. It is popular as a hanami (flower-viewing) spot, as it is one of western Japan’s best locations, even being selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. The view of a thousand trees including Yoshino cherries, double-flowered cherries and North Japanese hill cherries blossoming in front of the stone wall and rebuilt Bichu tower is awe-inspiring. The Tsuyama Cherry Blossom Festival is held early to mid-April, when the trees are highlighted with nighttime illumination. The mysterious beauty of nighttime cherry blossoms as seen from the keep is a view worth seeing at least once. Hours are from 8:40 to 19:00 (During the Festival, 7:30–22:00). The admission fee is 300 yen for adults. Entrance is free for children in junior high school or younger. Toilets, shops and paid parking available.
