This is actually the very first location in Japan where you can see the first Cherry Blossom of the year.

To the height of 453m, this wonderful location can be visited on a car trip. It is said that there are 7000 cherry blossoms trees on this hill and it is known as one of the best sights for cherry blossom viewing in the prefecture. In the middle of the park is a forest of cherry blossom trees. Here is where you will find a festival that runs from the end of January to the beginning of February that celebrates the blossoms. There are many different events held during the festival and many food booths are also here to be enjoyed.
