Nakakamado Maple Tree

<p>Nakakamado is a very uniquely-shaped maple tree. This incredible tree &ndash; designated as a Natural Monument &ndash; looks like an open umbrella, and has 3 m of roots that protrude out of the ground. If visiting during autumn-leaf season, it&rsquo;s best to plan your trip for mid to late-November. That being said, Nakakamado can be enjoyed through each of the four seasons &ndash; visitors can appreciate the fresh green leaves that cover it in spring, and the very unusual shape of the branches after the autumn leaves fall. &nbsp;</p>
