Approximately 1,500 blossoming Somei-yoshino cherry trees line both banks of the Nanatani-gawa River, extending for about 1 km and making this a popular blossom-viewing location. Adjacent to the river in Sakura Park, there are approximately 280 cherry trees of 28 varieties. This is also the location of the annual Cherry Blossom Festival and associated light-up events that draw many people to see the beautiful blossom each year.
Approximately a 25 minute walk from here, you'll also find Izumo-Dai-jingu Shrine, the highest ranking Shinto shrine of the Tamba region, which has recently gained popularity as a powerful spiritual location.
