Cherry Blossoms in Baryo Park

As the park's 630 Somei Yoshino cherry blossom trees bloom simultaneously, it is easy to be swept away by the scenery. You will be able to enjoy the coming of spring as you walk along rows of cherry blossom trees on the sando (a road which runs from the torii gate to the shrine). Baryo Park is a well-known location for viewing cherry blossoms, and every year from early to mid April the park holds a light-up event at night. We recommend you visit in the evening to see the cherry blossoms illuminated by the lights from the paper lanterns. A good spot for taking pictures is at the bottom of the sando, looking up at the torii.

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>
