Japan’s Top 100 Blossoms: Kinugasayama Park (Kanagawa)
The park is particularly popular during the sakura festival, held each year when the cherries are in bloom. Near the park are the ruins of Kinugasa Castle, a yamajiro that takes advantage of the hilly topography built in the early eleventh-century.
