10:00am Shiroyama Park(城山公園)

The first destination was Shiroyama Park, where Tateyama Castle is located!
I went in mid-November and the gingko trees in the park were at their best 🍁.
There were two routes to the castle, one mainly up the hill and the other mainly up the stairs, but the stairs look hard 😂.
Looking at the map, it looks like there are many cherry trees planted in the park, and I would like to come in the spring as well! 🌸
