Takada Park

Takada Park is a park maintained around Takada Castle which was built by the sixth son of Tokugawa Ieyasu, Mr. Tadahiro Matsudaira. The whole is designated as a historic site in Niigata Prefecture. The topography of the current park reflects the construction that was carried out by the old 13th army division in 1907 when the moat was dug. The park is about 50 hectares in size and is located in the heart of the city and is one of the largest parks in Japan. The triple turret castle has been restored and the park is also home to Joetsu General Munipal Musuem, the Kokei Kobayashi Memorial Museum of Art, Takada Library, and the Mimei Ogawa Literature Musuem located in the library. In addition to these cultural facilities, the park boasts an athletics stadium, a baseball stadium, bronze sculptures by Yuzo Iwano, a large open grassy area and playgrounds. It is an ideal place for citizens to take a walk or relax in. In addition, the park also contains the restored home of Kokei Kobayashi, the master of Japanese paintings and Gokuraku Bridge that connects the inner citadel and the outer citadel.
Takada Park shows a different side of itself throughout the four seasons. It is perhaps most famous in spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The park and surrounding area contain about 4000 Somei Yoshino cherry trees. The triple turret castle amidst a backdrop of cherry blossoms and lanterns make Takada Park one of the three best places in Japan for cherry blossom viewing. The "Takada Park 100,000 Visitors Cherry Blossom Festival" is held every year from early to mid-April. In summer, the lotus flowers that are planted in the park's moat bloom and the Lotus Festival, held from late July to mid August, is highly recommended.
