Yoshino Park よしのこうえん

A breathtaking view of Sakurajima and mountain silhouettes

Located in the northeast part of Kagoshima City, Yoshino Park is a city park featuring a full 30 hectares of lawns and gardens. At 234 meters high, the observatory overlooks Sakurajima across Kinko Bay. On a clear day, one can see as far as the Kirishima mountain range and Mt. Kaimondake. The park was chosen as one of “Japan’s Top 100 Urban Parks” in 1989. The park grounds are a relaxing setting surrounded by around 70,000 trees from 140 different species. In addition to a Japanese-style garden and a Japanese sago palm garden, the approximately 40,000 azaleas envelope the area around the fountain in bright, lush colors. Kawazu-zakura cherry blossoms are in full bloom in late February, while normal cherry trees bloom in April. Enjoy the beautiful interplay between Sakurajima and the flowers that bloom through the season.
