OkiPark Vol.24 Nago Central Park
Nago Central Park is a huge nature park covering an area of 71.1 hectares on a hill overlooking Nago City. From the highest point of the park, one can see a panorama view of downtown Nago against the background of beautiful East China Sea. The park includes long nature trails, a kids’ play equipment area, giant suspension bridge, observatory, Nago shrine, youth hostel and more.
The park is very famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot late January. The annual Nago Cherry Blossom Festival on the last weekend of January takes place every year in front of the park. The long stairway leading up to Nago Shrine is lined with cherry trees in full blossom offering very beautiful and breathtaking view.
