I am planning to visit Takato Castle Ruins Park on 13 Apr 2019 morning, for cherry blossoms. I know it is going to be packed!
As I plan to move on to Matsumoto Castle by the afternoon, I cannot afford to spend many hours at Takato Castle Ruins Park (unfortunately).
Is 3 hours good enough to cover the entire park for cherry blossoms, and also some photography?
The JR Bus service between Inashi station and Takato Castle Ruins Park doesn’t seem frequent. So I am thinking of taking a taxi instead. May I have an indication as to how much the fares can be, one-way?
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
Yes, three hours is plenty of time to see all of the park. You will have more than enough time to take wonderful photographs as well.
A taxi from Inashi Station to Takato Castle Park will take about 30 minutes and cost around 4,200 yen. If you haven’t already, check this page for more information on access to Takato Castle Park.
Let me know If you have any other questions.
Thanks for your info, and the web-link. It\’s helpful.
Happy to know that 3 hours is good for me to enjoy the ohanami and also photography. 🙂
Taxi seems expensive but may still consider, if necessary.
Have a great day!
I’m glad I could be of help. Enjoy your trip!
