Hakodate Goryokaku Park

I have had backache recently.
I sometimes suffer from backaches because my back bone has a crack. When I went to see a doctor a long time ago, he told me about it seeing my X-ray. I was so surprised to hear this, because I didn't know when it happened. I asked the doctor whether it would be recovered or not. I was shocked to hear that it would never be recovered.
When my backache is serious, I go to take natural hot springs as a last resort. It works well.
This time, I haven't gone there, but I got better after I rode a bike for about an hour (a round trip). I took a chance. I had been wondering which was better, exercising or lying on the bed.
I will sit in the car for more than four hours tomorrow. I hope that my backache will not get worse again.

I like cherry blossoms at Hakodate Goryokaku Park the best.
I went to see them. They were so beautiful. Goryokaku Tower with carp streamers was nice, too.

I have been suffering from a backache recently.
I sometimes suffer from backaches because one of my vertebrae has a small unhealed fracture. When I went to see a doctor a long time ago, he told me about it after seeing my X-ray. I was so surprised to hear this because I didn't know when it could have happened. I asked the doctor whether it would heal or not. I was shocked to hear that it would never fully heal.
When my backache is serious, I soak in a natural hot spring as a last resort. It works well.
This time, I got better after I riding my bike for about an hour. I had been wondering which was better, exercising or lying in bed. Although I was afraid I could make it worse by not staying in bed, I decided to take a chance by exercising.

I will sit in the car for more than four hours tomorrow. I hope that my backache will not get worse again.

I like the cherry blossoms at Hakodate Goryokaku Park the *most.
I went to see them. They were so beautiful. Goryokaku Tower, especially with the attached carp streamers billowing in the wind, was also very nice.

*The difference between 'best' and 'most' is one of objective quality vs subjective quantity.

Ex. 1 - I think this cake is the best because it is always fresh.

Ex. 2 - Of all the cakes on the market, I like this cake the most. I love the flavor.

Explanation: To say that you like something the best doesn't make sense when you break it down. It is the best, but you must quantify your like of it. How much do you like it? Not much or very much...the least or the most. You are talking of your desire, or lack of, and not the object of the discussion.

The word 'best' is a statement of quality. It refers to the object you are discussing. I would say that most native speakers confuse these two.
