It was more than I imagined 👍 The double cherry blossoms continue for about 300m and it is very beautiful! ️ It was wonderful. I saw it twice, walking and driving 🎵 It is also recommended to go back and forth by car.

Located on the river terrace cut by the Tone and Agatsuma rivers, the road and townscape spread out in parallel with the earthworks of Shirai Castle. It's very tasteful. The cafe that remodeled the warehouse was also good. It seems that the double cherry blossoms are beautiful in spring, so I will go there again.
