No.68 Weeping Cherry Tree by Hakusan-jinja Shrine
Located in Yuzawa City next to Hakusan-jinja Shrine (Oshirasama), this grand old weeping shidarezakura cherry tree is an estimated 200 years old and stands some 10 meters tall with branches stretching 20 meters wide. Nestled in front of verdant mountains and near the shrine’s vermillion torii gate, the elegant tree is imminently photogenic. A group of volunteers in the area frequently offer complimentary tea to visitors as well.
