A castle town with a 700 year history, Takato's Castle Remains Park features lots of natural beauty: cherry blossoms in the spring, pretty fresh green leaves in early summer, and the fall colors of more than 250 maple trees. There are onsens nearby and lots of activities to enjoy. The Castle Park's cherry blossoms are a unique variety and are known throughout Japan. More than 400,000 people come to see the over 1500 trees, some over 130 years old. The distinctive reddish tinted small petals are considered the best cherry blossoms in the whole country.
