Now is the time to see early blooming sakura, "Kawazu-zakura" in Utsunomiya. Kawazu-zakura, one kind of sakura, is in a full bloom here in Utsunomiya, Tochigi Japan. This day, It was a pleasant sunny day, many families and couples were spending time according to each one's wish. Typically, sakura blooms around late march but this species is already in a full bloom. This sakura has pinker color and larger pedals compared to the other cherry blossoms. The name "Kawazu" comes from the place in Izu Peninsula in central Japan, where it was discovered. It was a warm sunny day this day, many visitors were spreading their picnic ground sheets and having a pleasant time. Families having lunch under the warm sunny sky, parents and children playing badminton, couples having a nice little walk, photographers concentrating on taking an amazing shot, and so on.

Small castle park area, looks nice from the outside and you can go inside the towers. It’s a nice little bit of history and there was a small room with some information about a festival held in the town. Must visit if in Utsunomiya

The ruins and park are worth a visit. Well kept and easily accessible. The two towers are accessible and feature a modest exhibition.

Nothing much to do, but to take a picture of the renovated castle 🏰. I went during sakura season. But the sakura trees are in front of the castle not near the castle. Best spot for jogging and strolling with dogs or friends.
