We walked through here on our way to my friend’s flat and it was very pretty in the snow. Although there is very little of the castle left (and you can’t go inside), the bridge over the most is quite striking and there are a...More

Every nearby museums and stores were close during new year (of course), but this castle gate still opened to let people walk through inside park with man-on-the-horse statue. Even there was no any other beautiful castle of building (except the old nearby tower-like museum, but...More

About 7 minutes walk from Yamagata station. There is not a huge castle but a greenly park. I saw a lot of people who jog and walk. Unfortunately I didn't enter a museum cause I didn't have much time. It seemed to be interesting.

Kajo park features "Yamagata Castle" which isn't a castle but the remaining and restored outer walls, Yamagata Kyodokan, a baseball pitch and an abundance of Sakura trees and is surrounded by a mote. It would be absolutely breathtaking during spring. It is perfect for those...More

The cat colony was the highlight for our daughter- lots of well few strays here! We were a little too early for the cherry blossoms, looks like it would be beautiful. There's not a lot of Yamagata city, but this was a pleasant stroll after...More

The castle ruins aren't much to see, but the park is a nice place to take a walk amid greenery and away from city streets. But don't miss the Saiseikan Museum. It was originally a hospital built in 1877 and it now houses medical supplies...More
