Autumn cherry blossom viewing party

Tsuyama Castle, which is listed as one of Japan's top 100 castles, is a Hirayama castle built in 1616 by Tadamasa Mori, the younger brother of Ranmaru Mori.

[TSUYAMAGIC Tsuyama Castle Night Illumination] is an illumination that lights up the Bicchu Yagura, which was restored to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the construction of the castle, the stone walls that extend 45 meters from the ground, and the rich vegetation. Using numerous lights, sounds, and projection mapping, we will brighten up your exploration of the ancient castle at night.

A famous cherry blossom spot that has been selected as one of the ``Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots.'' Please enjoy the "Cherry Blossom Viewing Party of Light" held in autumn.

Once upon a time, in this Tsuyama
There was a big castle

Sakuragami-sama lives around the castle.
They protected the people living in Tsuyama.

Even after the castle is gone,
To keep the smiles on the faces of the people of Tsuyama,
In spring, beautiful cherry blossoms bloom,
It has made many people smile.

Rumor has it that after the fifteenth night of September,
What is that “Sakuragami-sama”?
It appears in Kakuzan Park and seems to cast a spell of light.


During the TSUYAMAGIC event, the first 200 people who post photos of the venue with a specific hashtag will receive an event-limited “glowing bracelet”!
