Utsubuki Park 打吹公園
Visit beautiful Utsubuki Park in all seasons
Located at the foot of Mt. Utsubuki, Utsubuki Park is beautiful throughout the four seasons, with a lush forest and magnificent cherry blossoms as its highlights. Take some time to reconnect with nature by taking a stroll through the forest that has been selected as one of the top 100 urban parks in Japan.
How to Get There
The closest major transport hub to the park is JR Kurayoshi Station. From there, take a bus to the park; your journey should take around 20 minutes. Utsubuki Park is situated behind Kurayoshi City Hall.
Famous spot for flower-viewing
With approximately 2,000 cherry trees and 20,000 azaleas, Utsubuki Park is considered one of Japan's best urban parks and is the foremost spot for flower-viewing in the Sanin region, which spans Tottori and Shimane prefectures.
Inside the park
At the park entrance is an attractive pond with a red bridge, a popular spot for wedding photos. Several hiking trails lead you to the tree-covered mountain top, with the most popular and easiest-to-navigate path located at the back of a zoo. Take a route down the back of the mountain to an athletics track and sumo ring. This route finishes at the Kurayoshi Sports Center to the east of the mountain.
The symbol of Kurayoshi City
The mountain in the park is a major symbol of Kurayoshi City , a former economic center of the region.
