    Within the grounds of IWATE PARK is the site of Morioka Castle. All buildings within the castle ground were destroyed during the Meiji Restoration battles. What remains is only the stone wall of the castle. These ruins are considered to be one of the 3 best-known castle sites in the Tohoku. Many famous poets & writers have immortalized the castle through their works.

    Morioka Castle was constructed in 1597 (Keicho 2) by the Lord of Nambu, Nobunao.

    A national historic site.

    About 15 mins walk from Takuboku's Honeymoon House within the city center. However, once in the park, one can somewhat feel the tranquility & aura of its rich history.

    Here, I came across moms taking their toddlers for walks as well as school children having their art lessons on site. A very cosy feeling :)

    It's free admission & you get to see the living quarters of the old Japanese house. Isn't that great?
