Let’s take a walk around the popular night cherry blossom spot

where love comes true

 

There are two parks known for cherry blossoms in Higashimatsuyama City, Saitama.
Kaminuma Park (Onuma) and Shimonuma Park (Menuma) are popular places to relax among the local people.
There is an old alleyway that connects these two parks. Every year during the first weekend in April there is an event called “Higashimatsuyama Dream Light Road” that takes place on this 1km alleyway. The road is lined with 1,500 lanterns and when the lanterns are light up, the two parks are tied together with light.
It is said that the dream of two people as well as a love wish will come true if you walk around the dream light road and visit Onuma’s Matsuyama Shrine and Menuma’s goddess, Benten-sama.
Both the Kaminuma Park and Shimonuma Park have cherry blossom trees planted along the swamp. Cherry blossom trees blooming in the marshes are beautiful and shine on the surface of the swamp. There are many ancient cherry blossom trees, making the branches look dynamic! Your dreams will come true under the cherry blossoms in full bloom.
