About 300 cherry trees blossom around Kokura Castle. Though it is famous for cherry blossom viewing at night, yet having lunch under the cherry blossoms while viewing Kokura Castle is all the more tasteful. Moreover, there are Matsumoto Seicho Memorial Museum and Kokura Castle Garden around Kokura Castle.
