No.67 Kasumi Cherry Tree at Kuzuoka
Kasumizakura are a wild variety of sakura and late blooming, with white petals that emerge together with new green leaves. This 400-year-old kasumizakura can be found on the land of a traditional hot spring inn nestled in a mountain village. The tree’s main trunk was split in a typhoon, but still boasts a circumference of six meters. It is still one of the largest kasumizakura in Japan.
