Ozawa Sakura

This beautiful cherry blossom tree stands alone in the centre of a field. The small temple next to the tree is dedicated to the Buddhist deity of child safety & childbirth. This scenery is so beautiful - it has even been used in Japanese movie posters.
Ozawa Sakura usually reaches full bloom at the end of April.
