Yamagata City is the seat of prefectural government in Yamagata Prefecture but was once a castle town of the Mogami clan and boasted an annual income of 570,000-goku. The Ninomaru Higashi Otemon Gate, now rebuilt in Kajo Park reminds tourists of the atmosphere of long ago as it sits alongside the ruins of the former Yamagata Castle. For visitors in search of celebration, the Hanagasa Matsuri is one of the main festivals in Tohoku and participants dance to Hanagasa ondo music while holding Hanagasa (a flower hat). Flower hats are hats decorated with safflowers as the safflower is the prefectural flower of Yamagata Prefecture.
