Maizurujo Park (Kofu Castle Ruins)


Enjoy the Kofu Castle ruins in the natural surroundings of this historic park!
Kofu Castle was built in the late 16th century. A section of the former castle grounds is today open to the public as Maizurujo Park.
Visitors can see the original stone walls, reconstructed gates and the foundation stones of the castle tower, the top of which offers a panoramic view of Kofu city.
During the springtime cherry blossom season, many visitors come to the park and enjoy a stroll around the stone walls framed with 160 cherry blossom trees in bloom, which are exceptionally beautiful with views of Mount Fuji in the background.
