Tottori Castle Ruins・Kyusho Park

The Tottori castle is famous for Hideyoshi Toyotomi’s starving strategy. Even now you can see the summit base once the castle tower stood on, the ruins of the outer citadel, and so on. The surrounding land was turned into Kyusho Park, and offers relaxation to Tottori citizens. It is a famous cherry tree-viewing spot in spring, and after that, in the open ground at the foot of Mt. Kyosho, Azaleas reach full bloom. It is a nationally designated historical site.
