On March 29, the Kakunodate Tourism Event Executive Committee decided to cancel this year's Cherry Blossom Festival. However, in Semboku City, as the cherry blossoms bloom, parking lots on the streets of Kakunodate Town such as Bukeyashiki Street will increase, and road congestion will increase, so that the municipal parking lot can achieve a certain dam effect. We have continued to operate two locations around the area (Sakuranamiki parking lot and former Kakunodate ground temporary parking lot).
However, when analyzing the usage status of the parking lot on 4 / 18-19, the weather and flowering conditions also affect, and more than 70% of the cars are Akita numbers than the numbers outside the prefecture, and the citizens and the people are more than expected for the dam effect. Considering the safety of tourists, we decided that it was inappropriate to continue this situation.
If the opening of the parking lot encourages attracting customers, it will be a wrong message regarding the continuation of the parking lot business, so for the time being from April 20th, Sakuranamiki Parking Lot and The old Kakudaka Ground temporary parking lot will be closed.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
