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月初旬に訪れました。ダム湖周を1週するように散策道や広場があります。私は駐車場前の散策道のみ歩きましたが、桜並木が続き、既に頼朝桜(河津桜)が咲いており、桜のピンクと一面に咲いた水仙の白と黄色のコントラストが綺麗で、一足早く春を感じられました。春本番にはまだ蕾だった桜も満開になり、見応えがありそうでした。舗装はされていますが、傾斜が強いので足腰の悪い方や車椅子の方は、気を付けられて下さい。

早咲きの頼朝桜(河津桜)が見られるとのころで出かけていきましたが、まだ時期が早すぎて1~2分咲きでした。
タイミング合えば絶対にきれいだと思います。湖の周りを散策できます。
ただ、駐車スペースがあまりありません。
河津桜の他にスイセン、梅などもあります。
