Odawara Kamaboko Sakura Matsuri(Odawara Kamaboko & Cherry Blossom Festival)

 

【Castle surrounded by cherry blossoms】

Every year from late 3 to early 4, Odawara Joshi Park will be a popular cherry blossom viewing spot. About 300 Somei Yoshino is in full bloom as it surrounds the castle tower and bowl, and it is crowded with a large number of flower visitors at the best time to see.

When the castle and moat are in the back, the cherry blossoms are very beautiful.

At Odawara Castle Ruins Park Ninomaru Square, "Kamaboko Musume Handmade Demonstration" and "Kamaboko Board Overnight Castle Battle" competing for how high you can stack the Kamaboko board within the time limit were done.

There were also corner where Odawara Kamaboko was sold in the market and various stalls, and it was an event that you can enjoy "food" while watching the cherry blossoms.

On the weekend's Odawara castle ruins park around this time of the year, parking lot is full of parking lot, traffic jams waiting for parking lot are intense, so we recommend traveling by train or bus.
