When spring comes, Tsuriyama Park is covered by cherry blossoms.
In my childhood, my family and I used to go there, take the special lunch boxes and enjoy the view. Although it was beautiful view of the cherry blossoms in the daytime, the night view of flowers in which the lanterns were lighted was also exceptionally beautiful.
Tsuriyama which is 90 metres above sea level is located in the east end of the mountain range which met the Iwai river which makes Mt Kurikoma the original flow. The top of the mountain is an open space called *"Senjōjiki" which can command a whole view of a city area.
The Tsuriyama Park which it takes about 10 minutes on foot from JR Ichinoseki station has a little history. It is reported that the park is the remains of a castle barrier, and there are the circumstances to which excavation work was advanced once.
It's just a pity for drivers because there are not much parking spaces around.
