Kajo Park

  • img

It is a park located in the ruins of Yamagata Castle.
The current castle walls are said to be the original ones built by its 11th lord, Mogami Yoshiaki (1546~1614).

During the Hasedo Battle, also called the Sekigahara battle of Dewa, Naoe Kanetsugu climbed Mt. Fujigami in an attempt to scout the Yamagata Castle from its summit, but it was hidden by the mists. This is where the castle takes its name.

As a park, it is now a place for citizens to relax.
The bank of the moat is maintained as a walking path, and many kinds of birds can be observed on the trees.

It is also a famous spot for cherry blossoms, and the reflection of the trees in the moat is a masterpiece.
During the cherry blossom season, trains also drive slowly to entertain the passengers.

❀ Sakura ❀

御堀の周りを囲むように咲くソメイヨシノは息を呑む美しさ。
また開花中ライトアップされ、お堀の水面に映し出される桜もまた幻想的です。
開花時には霞城観桜会が開かれ、茶会や蕎麦の振舞いなどもあります。(例年4月中旬)

公園内には約20種類もの桜の木があり、長く桜を楽しめます。
