The park is located on top of the river terrace of Chikuma River, on the former site of a castle built by Sengoku Hidehisa, first ruler of Komoro domain. The castle is one of Japan's Top 100 Castles, and it is believed that its three-tiered castle tower was initially constructed with roof tiles with a gold-leaf impressed paulownia design. The site is now managed by the city and open to public as a park. The San-no-mon gate at the entrance is designated as Japan's Important Cultural Property, and you can find traces of the old castle in the stone foundation of the castle tower. The park is also on the list of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots, and receives many visitors in spring. It is also known for its beautiful autumn foliage. In 1899, when Shimazaki Tosan was appointed to a school in Komoro, he left behind a number of works. One of his greatest work, The Broken Commandment, was drafted here.
