Tsuruoka Park鶴岡公園

Event

Famous as one of the prefecture’s finest sakura spots, this park was created over the Tsurugaoka Castle—in which the Sakai family of the Shonai clan supposedly resided for 250 years. It is one of the top spots in the prefecture for cherry trees, with roughly 700 of them, and is included in Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. Bonbori lamps provide illumination during the peak season, creating a mysterious and beautiful scene of floating cherry blossoms that is worth a look.

          Yamagata Main Areas

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
