About 650m from Yamagata station to the south bridge across the moat, Kajo Park is easy to get to. There is an elevated walkway around about 90% of the perimeter; it is in the shade and affords nice views across the moat to the local neighborhoods and inwards to the park. There are many feral cats in the park, some friendly and some shy. It's a great stroll around, and the restored east gate is historic and impressive.

A relatively short walk from Yamagata station, this park was the former site of Yamagata Castle. I jogged around this park (inside the park and outside the moat). Up along the top of the wall it's shady and when it was raining, the trees served as umbrellas. My wiffe and I also enjoyed strolling around the park, greeting others, and taking in a few historical sites. It's a nice place to spend a couple hours for sightseeing and also a nice place to revisit to relax and meet people. While we were there, there was significant construction going on in one section of the park--building a baseball field, I think.

We just loved this park. We were there for the full bloom of the cherry blossoms, and it was just glorious. It's bigger than it seems, with lots of beautiful paths lined with cherry blossoms. I'd imagine it's a lovely park in Summer and Autumn, as well.

We arrived quite late at Yamagata, but fortunately this park was illuminated during sakura season and location is within walking distance from Yamagata Station. It was our first sakura experience, since we missed it in Tokyo, and even in Sendai. But glad we made it to Yamagata, because here the hanami was less crowded than in capital. We went in from southern part of the park (near Kajo Central building) and found it to be less crowded. Walk through the path, and ended up in the main gate (Higashi Otemon, cmiiw). I'm not familiar with different types/colours of sakura, but the petals of sakura trees here were predominantly white with slight pink hue. The spacious hanami spot was somewhere around the main gate, nearby the neighbourhood road. But along the path within the park, there were some corners with bench where we can also relax while enjoying the sakura.
