About Kubota Castle, Akita

So this attraction is famous for having nearly nothing to see. The castle USED to be here, but it's gone now, and all that remains is a watchtower, the Sumi Turret. Inside the watchtower is an observation area and a museum. The exhibits are based on the history of the Sakate family of samurai, who were historically 'shamed' for their participation in the losing side of the defining 1600 Sekigahara Battle. You will find suits, weapons, armour and old maps.

Kubota Castle, Akita Reviews

  • 新緑と紅葉の時期に行きましたが、いずれも雨でした…。 雨だったためひっそりとしていましたが、城としてのスケールはなかなかなもので、隅々まで見て廻ると結構な時間が掛かると思います。 佐竹義宣公の銅像もなんとなく品があって、結構お気に入りの場所です。

  • 雖只是城跡,但殘留的久保田城表門跟久保田城御隅櫓值得一看,還有公園前那一片蓮花池非常壯觀

  • 桜祭りの時はまだ寒い🌸でもライトアップも見たいかんじだし屋台いっぱい出てて楽し。つつじ祭りは5月中旬〜下旬ころ。

  • 雪が降る日に登城しました。 天守の手すりの朱塗りに目を捕られました。印象に残っています。

  • 佐竹宗家名誉城主佐竹一門を代表してこれからも市民の皆さんや国際的に秋田市に愛される千秋公園であって欲しいです。みんなのいこいの広場イベントを評価します‼
