Senshu Park offers a beautiful, peaceful place in the city to spend a couple of hours. The Watchtower, at the highest point in the park, hosts a small museum. The 360 panorama from the 4th floor of the tower is awesome, and the cool breeze...More

I never knew there was so much to see here. I guess I never paid much attention before. It was relaxing to sit at the top under the shade...

A nice park to walk around. Worth about 60 to 90 minutes. Wouldn't go out of my way for it unless I was actually in Akita.

Was not able to go inside but was worth the walk. Very tricky too get to in winter but I was glad I made the effort.

We spent several a couple of hours exploring this large park. There are shrines, castle, statues, a lovely pond and a museum. You get excellent views over Akita too. Even though there were several school classes and buses of tourists, the park did not feel...More

This park is large and although we spent over an hour strolling the paths, we didn't cover the entire area. Statues, gates, shrines, a castle turret, ponds, and a museum are here in a beautiful setting. The small museum and some other buildings charge a...More

This is a castle park pretty close to Akita station. Attractive in all seasons even in the middle of winter. If you go at the right time they have winter lighting events.

ここは散歩に最適です。広い城址公園です。中には久保田城があり、中を見学できます。入場料は100円なので是非入ってください。エレベータで4階まで行くと回廊があり、そこから秋田市内が一望できます。男鹿半島や日本海も観れますよ。 This park is good for walking. The park is former Kubota castle. We can enter the castle. Entrance fee is 100 yen. But you can see beautiful Akira city from the top. From there, you can see The Oga peninsula, Japan see, and the...More

Yes, it should be open. I saw pictures people posted when they visited there during winter season
