Tsuyama Castle (Kakuzan Park)

Japan, 135 Yamashita, Tsuyama City, Okayama Prefecture 708-0022

The symbol of Tsuyama City, which has been selected as one of Japan's ``100 Famous Castles'' and ``Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots.'' The castle was built in 1616 by Tadamasa Mori, the younger brother of Ranmaru Mori, who was killed in the Honnoji Incident. All of the buildings were demolished due to the Meiji Castle Abandonment Order, but Bicchu Yagura was restored in 2005 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the castle's construction. It has become a new popular spot along with the stone wall that boasts a height of over 10 meters. It is also known as one of the best cherry blossom viewing spots in the prefecture, and the scenery with about 1,000 cherry blossom trees in full bloom is spectacular. Cherry blossom season: Early April to mid-April (approximately 1,000 trees) Wisteria season: Late April to early May Azaleas season: Late April to early May Hydrangea season: Mid-June to late June Autumn leaves season: Late October to mid-November
