ステキな所です。盛岡駅前からでんでんむしバスで10分ぐらいかかった (100¥/チケート)。機会があれば、ぜひ行って見て下さい。😊 A wonderful place for a sunny day. There is also a Japanese temple (jinjya) which I’m so lucky when I was there they had a kind of ceremony, so interesting I even bought a lucky charm myself (kinda expensive, around 10$ each).

I went to many sakura spots this year, but Iwate Park was my favorite. Granted, this may have been partly because it happened to be the best weather on the day I went to Iwate Park. Unlike sakura tunnels that require kilometers of walking to...More

We had a bit time waiting for the hotel shuttle and we decided to visit Iwate Park. It is just normal, average park. It was nice to see autumn colors in there, but the same we could see in many other parks...

Finally jagged Sakura in absolute full bloom. So the whole park was a delight in late April. Not a lot of historic elements, but is a good place to stroll

We came at the height of the cherry blossom and the park was full but still very enjoyable. There are many monuments and statues for those of historical importance to this area and great views over the city.

We discovered this park while just strolling around Morioka and it's a little gem as a place to grab some solitude, see a few ducks and some lovely specimen trees.
