No.32 Shiroyama Park and Eai River
Shiroyama Park is situated on a hill and gives visitors views of the Eai River and Wakuya Town. The still-standing castle turret provides a glorious backdrop to the many sakura in the park. More than 600 somei yoshino are planted on the former castle grounds, Wakuya-jinja Shrine, and down to the left bank of the Eai River. The Wakuya Sakura Festival is held in April and includes night-time illuminations and fireworks.
