Yamagata is a city in northern Japan. In the center, Kajo Park contains the remains of Yamagata Castle, and is known for spring cherry blossoms. Northeast of the city, a long stairway leads up Mount Hojusan to the Yamadera Temple complex. The temple’s Godaido observation deck offers panoramic views. Nearby, Yamadera Basho Museum is dedicated to the 17th-century poet Basho, who was inspired by his visit to the area.
