No.42 Mamigasaki Sakura Line
The Mamigasaki River and road along it are lined with around 190 somei yoshino forming a sakura line for 2.3 kilometers. Visitors can walk or drive along the road and enjoy the pale pink blossoms. The trees became popular as the branches on opposing sides grew toward each other to form a sakura tunnel that becomes even more romantic when lit up at night.
