Matsumae Park Cherry Blossom Festival

Matsumae Park was once the former castle grounds north of Matsumae Castle. This area is the home of over 250 different species of cherry trees and features over 10,000 cherry trees. Because of the 250 different species of cherry trees, Matsumae Park has a unique and long cherry blossom season that lasts from late April to late May. The Matsumae Cherry Blossom Festival is held here for much of late April to late May as well.

This place is so well known for its Cherry Blossoms it is included in the top 100 selection of Cherry Blossom spots in Japan. Here resides about 250 species growing on about 10000 trees. Its nickname is the "Little Kyoto of the North" because of its resemblance to Teramachi in Kyoto. Visitors are given a whole month for viewing the cherry trees here, starting around the end of April and lasting until the end of May. Early bloom, mid-bloom and late bloom can all be enjoyed during this period. The light-up of the Hokkaido heritage-certified Matsumae Castle, Tsugaru Strait and cherry blossoms after sunset all attribute to a masterpiece. The Matsumae Cherry Blossom Festival is held during the full bloom period of the trees. Fun events such as a march of armor-clad warriors, showcases of local folk entertainment, along with shops selling local foods of Matsumae can also be enjoyed.
