I visit this place accidentally. This park is so big. I went there in autumn season so all the leaves turned red and yellow

Quintessential park for sakura
Apr 2018 • Solo
This park is basically a large lake with a fringe of sakura trees along a 2 km embankment, and a little island you can access via a foot bridge where there is a little Torii gate and a small, colorful pagoda. I went during a weekday so it wasn't too crowded, but there were many people having hanami parties, and a few food vendors on a short stretch leading up to the bridge. In 2018 sakura was super early in many areas, by 11 days, but fortunately the Hyogo area stayed cool and peaked the first week of April as usual. So I was able to take many beautiful sakura pictures of this park.
One problem with this park is it's quite large, so at first, I hit one of the parking lots on the other side of the park. A grove of sakura trees there was well past peak. I was about to give up on the park and leave when I decided to circumnavigate the periphery of the park, and Bingo! I spotted the section where the lake was and the Yoshino trees were peaking. The big problem when visiting these large flower or theme parks by car is finding the right parking lot where you can access the 'claim to fame' the park is known for. It's not fun navigating the narrow side streets around the area but it's a rite of passage you have to go through and hopefully you will be rewarded.
