Aodani Plum Grove

Commanding a distant view of the holy mountain Jubo, the Aodani Plum Grove spreads out over the gently sloping hills bordering the crystalline Aodani River. The 20-hectare plum grove has been reknowned as a scenic spot since olden times. Its 10,000 plum trees are mainly of white-blossomed varieties, such as the large and fragrant Joshuhaku, Joyo City's plum species. The Plum Festival is held every year from late February to late March.
