Cherry Blossoms at Gongendo Park

 

“Gongendo Park Sakura Tsutsumi” is a famous sakura viewing area, which has a sakura tunnel with about 1,000 blooming sakura, making the tunnel over 1 km in length. In addition, rape blossoms bloom next to the cherry blossom tunnel, so you can see the contrast between the pale pink cherry blossoms and the yellow rape blossoms.

About 3,000 sakura trees were planted about 100 years ago, and became Saitama Prefecture’s best cherry blossoms viewing spot.

During the sakura festival, gourmets in Japan can enjoy the 100 shops that will be open at this time.
