A nice park to walk around. Worth about 60 to 90 minutes. Wouldn't go out of my way for it unless I was actually in Akita.

We spent several a couple of hours exploring this large park. There are shrines, castle, statues, a lovely pond and a museum. You get excellent views over Akita too. Even though there were several school classes and buses of tourists, the park did not feel...More

Yes, it should be open. I saw pictures people posted when they visited there during winter season
