Cherry Blossom Festival at Matsumae Park

The Matsumae Cherry Blossom Festival is held at Matsumae Park from the end of April to late May. The grounds of the park were once part of the Matsumae Castle. North of the former castle there are over 10,000 cherry blossoms planted in rows across the area. You can see over 250 varieties of the flower throughout the park, which is why the blooming period in the area lasts for a month. Also located in the northern vicinity there is a sakura (cherry blossom) museum that explains the development of flower in Matsumae and shows the different specimens planted all over the park.
BR> During the Matsumae Cherry Blossom Festival there are a variety of events held like traditional music and local folk performances. There will also be food shops available selling some local specialties. A long time ago a powerful samurai clan ruled the area, thus there is a march of armor clad warriors as one of the events. There is a viewpoint that can be reached by hiking trails at the foot of Mount Shogun. About halfway up Mount Shogun you will come across a hut that overlooks the cherry blossoms in the Matsumae vicinity. It is a view not to miss if you are planning to be there for the blooming season.
