Sadly, we strolled through the Park in winter so missed what would clearly have been a beautiful display of lotus flowers (summer) or spring blossoms. Takada Park is designated one of Japan's Top 100 Historical Parks and also one of the most "Three Beautiful Places...More

The lilies were in full bloom and attracted many locals. The pond was almost fully covered in large pink flowers and the city had put up sunshades for the visitors.

We were on our way to Myoko and heard the cherry blossoms were early and the best place to see them was at Takada Park. They were just amazing. Even better than what we saw in Yokyo.

A place of recreation and relaxation for local people. It surrounds Takada castle,which is the best scenery in Joetsu. You can enjoy 4,000 cherry blossoms in April, beautiful lotuses in May, tennis, athletics, walking, jogging and everything. I especially love outdoor reading in Takada park.

Visiting in winter the park and it’s gardens were covered in snow, whilst it was great to walk around the snow covered grounds it was obvious this place would come alive in Spring. If you visiting in the region Takada is definitely worth a visit.

This unassuming park in the little known city of Joetsu is a hidden gem. It's claim to fame is Ohanami: cherry blossom viewing. Takada Park is regarded as one of the top 3 places in Japan to view cherry blossoms, and if you visit during...More
