Superb autumn colors at Kasumigajo Park, Nihonmatsu City, Nov. 14, 2016 (二本松市の霞ヶ城公園 紅葉に賑わう 2016年11月14日)

Today, I visited Kasumigajo Park in Nihonmatsu City on the way back from Date City in the north. Autumn colors were at their best as shown in the picture above of autumn color tunnel along its path. This large park was made at a historic site of Nihonmatsujo Castle ruins and was designated as a National Historic Site.

I first pedaled along a cycling road which runs through a hillside surrounding the park. Photo above shows today's view from the cycling road, where an entire site can be seen, including Minowamon Gate in the lower right side and old castle ruins in the upper left. Leaves of trees are not showing bright colors due to cloudy weather still you can recognize the colors.

There are some waterfalls in the Japanese-style garden in the park. Photos above show Hotei Falls running into Ruri Pond, a front-side view and a close-up view.

Photo above shows the smallest waterfall in the park called Kasumigataki Falls. The waterfall is barely recognizable compared to the large tree behind.

A chrysanthemum doll festival of Nihonmatsu is now being held in the park until Nov. 23, 2016.

The exact route and locations are shown in the map below. The map can be scaled up and down with a click and scroll.
