Famous Castle in Nara for Cherry Blossom

Ruins of Koriyama Castle 郡山城跡

First built in 1580, Koriyama Castle was home to Junkei Tsutsui, a feudal lord who overcame many rising local samurais and united Yamato province. In 1585, Koriyama domain (and the castle) was succeeded by Hidenaga Toyotomi, a little brother of Hideyoshi Toyotomi (one of the three greatest Sengoku Period commanders), who made Koriyama a even more prosperous town. Like many other castles, those were the glorious days. Koriyama castle was destroyed during the Meiji Period and part of it was restored in 1980.

Today, Koriyama castle is a popular ruin and a park for the locals. If you want to avoid the regular tour group places for cherry blossom in Nara, the ruins of Koriyama Castle is a good option.

25 minutes away by Kintesu Train from Nara, Koriyama castle is along the track that you will see before you get off at Koriyama station.
Simply walk back to the castle direction. This is the path towards the castle or simply follow the traffic during cherry blossom.
到郡山城跡只需乘坐奈良近鐵,約25分鐘路程,到達郡山站之前你會看到郡山城,下車後沿鐵路走回到城跡。這是徒步到郡山城跡的道路之一。櫻花期週末會有很多人,跟著人潮就可以。

我是週末去的,有很多一家大小郊遊散步,在櫻花樹下野餐。但這裡不是旅行團大景點,人多都玩得比較輕鬆。
