GPS art of cherry blossoms drawn on 1,000 cherry trees in the ruins of the castle✨
This is a GPS art course of cherry blossoms to be drawn in Honjo Park, one of the most famous cherry blossom viewing spots in Akita Prefecture.
Honjo Castle was built in the early Edo period (1603-1867), and was developed into a city park in the Taisho period (1912-1926). Approximately 1,200 Someiyoshino cherry trees and 10,000 azalea trees have been planted in the park, which is a popular place for citizens to relax. Cherry blossom and azalea festivals are held during the blooming season, and the cherry blossoms can be enjoyed at night when they are illuminated.
The course passes through the old city center and in front of the station, and also passes the ruins of the castle. Please try it as a new type of hanami since you can also enjoy sightseeing!
