No.27 Tsutsujigaoka Park
Tsutsujigaoka Park got its start when Date Tsunamura, the fourth leader of the Sendai Domain, planted 1,000 sakura brought from Kyoto including shidarezakura. The number of trees dwindled due to age and the ravages of World War II, but local citizens stepped in and began planting new trees. The park is now home to many sakura varieties such as yaebenishidarezakura, edohigan, somei yoshino.
