The cherry blossoms of Takato Castle Site Park have been considered the best since long ago. The variety found at Takato is takato-kohigan-zakura (Prunus subhirtella). These cherry blossoms are a little smaller and more distinctly pink than another cherry blossom varieties, such as ”someiyoshino” (Prunus yedoensis). These cherry trees turn the whole park on the hill pale pink. The best time to see cherry blossoms is mid April.
