Takada Park高田公園(高田城跡)

Event

Takada Park occupies the site of what was formerly Takada Castle, built by Matsudaira Tadateru, the son of Tokugawa Ieyasu; it is held in great affection by local residents as being a beautiful place to relax. More than 4,000 cherry trees (mainly of the Yoshino variety) have been planted in Takada Park, which is famous as one of the three biggest spots in Japan where visitors can view cherry trees that are illuminated at night. The “Takada Castle Million-Person Cherry Blossom Viewing Festival” is held every year from early April through into mid-April; with around 3,000 cherry trees illuminated by paper lanterns, and with the Castle’s three-tier Yagura tower lit up specially for the occasion, the Festival is a truly magical experience. Every year, there are large numbers of food-stands etc., and the Park is thronged with both local visitors and tourists from further away. Toilets, shops, and paid parking available. The nearest station is Takada Station.

Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
