To visit this park, you need to time your visit very carefully.

The best time is the end of October or early November when you can see lots of rea autumn leaves.

To early or too late is no good for this park.

Situated about 15 minutes by walking from the JR Morioka Station, this place is beautiful during cherry blossom. Restaurants are nearby and the place is full of locals having picnic. There is an area for food vendor.

This park was absolutely stunning. I think we spent about 2 hours walking around but I could have spent much longer if we hadn't had a train to catch. The grounds were beautiful, the rose garden was gorgeous, and the paths by the creek were so tranquil I just wanted to stay there and relax and watch the koi fish all day.

We went to Morioka on 19 Oct , took the denden bus (counterclock) to Morioka Castle and found that the light was not perfect for picture taking . So we went back to the station took another bus to Takamatsu Pond which was an easily short walking from the bus stop . Coming back to Morioka Castle at around 3pm ,it's the right time. There was not much of the ruined castle to see but the magnificent autumn colors with soft touch of light impressed us. And even though there was no english explanations at the ruined site we didn't find it a problems. We 're there until it's getting dark.

We walked here from our hotel near the train station in the early evening and were rewarded with great views of the city. The park was almost completely deserted at this time of day. The gardens themselves are basic but the park is large and green for people needed a nature fix.

I last visited the place in April for the sakura blossom. It was then beautiful. I now come back in November to see the autumn leaves. It is even better. Seen as a castle or ruins, there is not much to see. But, by now, all the trees, and there are many of them, have changed their colours - an abundance of red, orange and golden yellow. Together or individually, they make up an stunningly beautiful scene against the blue sky. If you are in the area in autumn, do not miss it.

This if ever is reconstructed will be come to attract many more tourists to the city. It still requires some walking to get around.

A lovely place to walk and reflect. There are beautiful trees and benches and bridges to walk over or sit and relax. Lovely views of some parts of the city

Visited in late spring, no cherry blossoms, no autumn leaves. I had initially thought that there was a castle ruin on the grounds to visit and walked in circles looking for it. Turned out that the entire park used to part of a castle, and the only remaining part of the castle were the high walls.

Nothing much here when I visited, but i found a wisteria covered gazebo when was amazing.

As its name explains, the place was formerly a castle, but now in ruins. Only the castle walls remain. The place is not huge, but has not been well maintained. The main attraction in Spring is its many sakura trees. The flowers were in full blossom on my day of visit. Although the layout of the trees is not well organised, the blossom still presents an amazingly beautiful scenery. The place is crowded. Locals sit under the trees, enjoying their picnic food and having a good time. Yet, the sakura season is quite short. Once the flowers are gone, there is nothing to attract visitors until Autumn when the red leaves favour the place.
