It is amazing to see full blossom of cherry trees at Takato Joshi Park in mid April. We are admired by over a thousand of sakura trees with beautiful pink flowers. It is fantastic to stay here from afternoon till night for nighttime sakura viewing.Bring your camera and tripod to take good shots.

It's true that Takato Castle Ruin attracts huge visitors during cherry blosom season. When I went there in November, the leaves were beautifully changing colors. If you love to visit castle ruins Takato castle ruin is a nice place for you though the ruin has no keep (main tower).
