View Gallery
Kikko Park was built upon the land where the residential castle of the Kikkawa clan, the former lords of Iwakuni, once stood. On these large grounds, there are valuable historic sites including the Mekata Residence, a home for a mid-level samurai which was constructed in the middle of the Edo Era (circa mid-18th century), Kinunkaku which was the residential castle for the Kikkawas, and Kikko Shrine where the ancestors of the clan are enshrined. The park has also cultivated many kinds of flora so it is well-known as a site of flowers.
