Akashi Park (兵庫県立明石公園)
This urban prefectural park is at the site of Akashi Castle. Approximately 1,000 Yoshino cherry trees are planted throughout the spacious 55-hectare grounds centered on Gono Pond. It’s been designated one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. The park bustles with visitors who come for cherry blossom viewing during the Akashi Park Cherry Festival held every year in April when the trees are in bloom. Boat rentals are available on Gono Pond, letting visitors view the cherry blossoms from the water at their leisure.

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.
