Minamoto no Yoritomo was opened Kamakura Bakufunate in 13th century, and lost the battle of Ishibashiyama and fled to Awa’s Ryushima by small boat (currently known as Kyonan Town) to plan his comeback. The “Kawazu Zakura” were renamed to “Yoritomo Sakura” in honor of this historical fact, and the town is currently aiming to be Japan’s #1 Sakura viewing location, actively continuing to plant new trees.
Currently, there are 14,000 Yoritomo Sakura Trees planted in the town, with 600 trees along the Hota River, 400 trees at the Sakuma Dam Park, and 400 trees along the Sakuma River.
Each day during the festival period, Yoritomo Sakura Trees are illuminated between 6 - 8 p.m., and the 8-km long Sakura-viewing hike is held from JR Hota Station.

As the highlight of the festival, “Hota River Yoritomo Sakura Bamboo Lantern Festival” will be held on Saturday, March 7 from 15:00 to 20:00, lighting up the Sakura trees. Don't miss the otherworldly sight of the Sakura being lit up with over 2000 candles from handmade bamboo lanterns!

Pleasant and relaxing. Nice place to walk your dog. Cool in midsummer.

The dam is a small lake, pleasant to walk around, with lots of flowers and trees lining the banks. There are some food stalls open on the weekend and holidays. A coffee roaster up the road. It is well known for its winter jonquils and early-blooming sakura.

ダム湖をのんびり1周しても1時間ちょっとの小さ目のアースダムです。
ダム湖周辺には桜や紫陽花等季節を感じられる植物が綺麗に植えられています。
ダム湖の規模の割に駐車場は充実しているので好きな所に車を止めて散策出来ます。
ツーリング、釣り目的の人が多い様です。

2.22 ピークは過ぎていましたが、河津桜、水仙がきれいでした。
これから先はソメイヨシノに期待です!
千葉県では桜を見るには一番?かも。

この日ダム点検のために水はほぼ空っぽ状態でした。

水仙は時期が終わっていましたが河津桜が満開でした❗️今日は風が強かったので青空に濃いピンクの花びらが舞い上がり桃源郷のようでした❗️河津桜が終わると次はソメイヨシノの番になりますね🎵今年は暖冬なので3月の中旬頃には咲くのではないかな?と地元の方が言ってました。又行こうと思います。
