Kofu City History Park


Gaze up at the reconstructed castle gates and Mount Fuji from the heart of the city
Located in the heart of Kofu on the north side of the station, Kofu City History Park is a lovely park to stroll around in while surrounded by historical buildings faithfully reconstructed using traditional methods.
The splendid view of Mount Fuji visitors can enjoy on a clear day from the park and the observation deck of the Yamanotegomon Gate is one of the 100 most famous in the Kanto region.

Come early April, the rare, once extinct "Great White" cherry trees planted on the park's premises bloom into life and blend in beautifully with the white walls of the Yamanotegomon Gate.
