What travelers say:

Like Kasumijo Park in Yamagata, Morioka Jo castle site park in Iwate Prefecture is a park full of ancient castle senboku, and it is a park where mottled castle walls are preserved in the park. Morioka Joji Park is a sacred place in Iwate Prefecture, and every year from the middle of 4 to the first half of 5, the Morioka Sakura Festival is held, and the 200 trees of Yoshino CHO, zanui, and the other side of Edo Cho in the park are opened, and when we go, it is full, and there is a view of Sakura Cho everywhere. It is also a large number of Japanese people who come to the park to enjoy the cherry blossoms. In Japanese tradition, Hanami is a very solemn thing, wearing kimono to reward the most formal, and there are still many older people who maintain this habit. During the cherry blossom festival, cherry blossoms, ancient city sites and people wearing kimono to enjoy the cherry blossoms form a scene of ancient rhyme. [The cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of It is built in the mid Edo period, and it is built in the shrine which is the site of Morioka Jo castle, and it is built in the shrine which is the old building of the shrine against the cherry blossoms. A block away from the Busan Shrine, the Morioka District Court can also see a very magical "stone-cut pupa", a cherry tree that has grown from a huge granite rock for nearly 400 years. It was designated as a natural monument in Japan in 1923. The cherry tree, which grew from the crevice of the giant stone, is full of life, and it was the first cherry tree in Iwate Prefecture, with the idea of priming, and is popular in the local area. Morioka's old neighborhood still has many historic buildings, such as merchants and houses built from the 19 century to the first half of the 20 century, and the atmosphere is calm and harmonious. JR Tohoku Shinkansen and Hokkaido Shinkansen take the Akita Shinkansen line and JR Tohoku Shinkansen line to Morioka.

    There is a lot of hype for this tree and I am sure in Spring time when blossoms are in bloom this will have more oomph.

    A magnificent tree in front of City Hall, well worth a visit

    Symbol of survival

    This is a very old sakura tree, growing out of a large piece of rock, breaking up the latter into two. The tree itself is not that pretty, even when the flowers are in full blossom. It remains a favou...
