ステキな所です。盛岡駅前からでんでんむしバスで10分ぐらいかかった (100¥/チケート)。機会があれば、ぜひ行って見て下さい。😊 A wonderful place for a sunny day.

We came at the height of the cherry blossom and the park was full but still very enjoyable. There are many monuments and statues for those of historical importance to this area and great views over the city.

We discovered this park while just strolling around Morioka and it's a little gem as a place to grab some solitude, see a few ducks and some lovely specimen trees.
