There is no actual castle. The outer defensive walls along the moat remain, and the Higashiote Gate (East Gate) has been rebuilt. The inner area is a park with numerous cherry trees which also line the moat. It is still worth a short visit as it is only a 10 minute walk from Yamagata Station. The area would be very beautiful during spring when the cherry trees blossom.
