Ashino Park - A great sakura viewing spot with a retro station building of the Tsugaru Railway
Ashino Park, located in Kanagi Town, Goshogawara City, is popular for its 1,500 cherry trees and old pine trees and is also known as a place where a famous novelist from this area, Osamu Dazai, used to play. An interesting feature of this large park is a retro train of the Tsugaru Railway that runs under the beautiful cherry blossoms in spring on the rail track laid across the park.
Retro train and cherry blossoms
The orange retro-looking train and an old station building of the Tsugaru Railway are nostalgic features of this park. You might feel as if you are in a movie, especially when you are surrounded by beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom.
The park and station which a great novelist used to visit
In Ashino Park, there is a monument and a statue of a famous novelist, Osamu Dazai, and a former building of Ashino Park Station, which appeared in his novel, called "Tsugaru."
