Morioka Castle Ruins Park (Iwate Park)

The historic site of Morioka Castle, which was the residence of the lord of the Nanbu domain. Morioka Castle was completed in 1633, during the reign of the 28th feudal lord, Shigenao.
It was a flat castle that used the Kitakami River, Shizukuishi River, and Nakatsu River as natural trenches, and was also called Fukugata Castle.
Today, the stone walls and pond remain, and the park is loved by citizens throughout the year as Morioka Castle Ruins Park.

Various trees and flowers decorate the four seasons, including cherry blossoms in the spring, colored leaves in the fall, and a plum grove.
