- Tsutsujigaoka Park
- About 300 years ago, the feudal lord Date Tsunamura, the fourth generation samurai leader of the Date family, planted some 1000 sakura cherry blossom trees such as Shidarezakura (weeping cherry tree), which were brought from Kyoto. This lore is said to the beginning of the park.
As time passed, the numbers of sakura cherry trees have decreased due to the aging of the trees as well as devastation in World War II. This spurred interest in reviving the place as a sakura park, and people started planting Sakura trees again. Now, the park is well known for its beautiful its sakura cherry blossoms. When the spring comes, a lot of people gather and enjoy picnics in the park under the cherry trees.
Many Shidarezakura trees blossom a little late. There are over 360 Sakura trees, including Yoshino cherry (Prunus yedoensis), double-flowered cherry trees, Higan Cherry and Ukonsaukra known for its flower’s pale golden color. You can enjoy watching flowers for a long period here.
