Myokensan Park

The park uses the castle ruins of one of the former Nine Castles of Awa, Muya Castle. The site is also known as a great cherry blossom viewing spot, and the flower viewing season in spring attracts a bustling crowd of viewers.
The lookout that commands a panoramic view of Naruto’s cityscape is also a must-see!
In March 2016, the keep replica that housed the former Prefectural Torii Memorial Museum reopened as Toriide Naruto, after undergoing renovation to become the city’s disaster shelter and a hub for social gatherings.
