This giant benishidare zakura (a type of weeping cherry tree) is said to be about 1,000 years old, which is one of the three biggest cherry trees in Japan. From the middle to end of April, the tree blooms in light pink blossoms that cascade in all directions like a waterfall of flowers. The area is also blessed with various flowers, including cherry and rapeseed blossoms. It is illuminated during the evening between 6PM to 9PM.
