Places Around to Visit
Two weeping cherry blossom trees stand on the site of the battle of Minamoto no Yoshiie against Abe no Sadato and Abe no Muneto. They are said to be the grandchildren of Miharu no Takizakura (Waterfall Cherry Tree of Miharu) and produce magnificent red flowers that look like a cascading waterfall. The trees are estimated to be 170 years old.
It is recommended to take photos from the bottom of the slope to enjoy the contrast of blue sky, cherry blossoms, and rape blossoms.
Known as one of the largest single cedar trees in Japan, its overhanging branches give it a dignified appearance that has been acquired over many years.
The tree is estimated to be 1,000 years old, with a height of 50m and a trunk circumference of 12.8m.
