“A good place for history buffs”

Yonezawa Castle Ruins / Matsugasaki Park
Reviewed 28 June 2016

A great starting point for visiting the various shrines and monuments dedicated to the great Uesugi samurai clan. A large shrine dedicated to Kenshin Uesugi, the founder of the powerful clan in on the castle ruins ground. A great statue of the daimyo Kenshin. Many things to see in a serene park. A large restaurant and souvenir shop on site. A bunch of smaller food stalls with very inexpensive and delicious local delicacies. Fairly easy walk from the train station.

This place is great for sightseeing all year around. But this time of the year, it's also great for "hanami" (admiring the cherry blossoms, and partying). This park is one of the best spots for cherry blossoms in this area, with cherry trees surrounding the lake around the castle. It only lasts for about two weeks, so hurry.

There's nothing left of the castle here, except the moat and a bit of the ramparts, but the park was pretty. The central feature now is a large, well-appointed shrine, with some nice subordinate shrines around it. The moat is well maintained. It rained during our visit, but that didn't interfere with our enjoyment.
