No.6 Cherry Tree of Koshidai
The cherry tree of Koshidai is more than 400 years old and a designated Fukushima Prefecture Natural Monument. It is one of the largest and oldest known yamazakura, or wild sakura. Standing about 20 meters tall, the sakura was chosen as one of the 100 giants in the forest by the Forestry Agency. From its perch on a small hill, it unfurls its long branches while large rocks cling to its roots on the ground.
