Once upon a time the Sakate Clan, one of the more powerful samurai families, had a castle at the site of this park. IT was called Kubota Castle. Practically nothing of the castle now remains, but there is a two story gate (through which you enter into the park) and a watchtower on the park's highest elevation - the Osumiyagura Turret . There is a small museum inside the tower, covering the history of the clan, but the real attraction there is the view from the highest point. As for the park itself, it was voted one of Japan's most beautiful. It's a local favourite throughout the year, and especially popular during the cherry blossom season, when cultural and music performances happen. By sheer virtue of being inside the park, the Iyataka Shrine is probably the most visited one in the city.
