Shizunai 20 Ken Road3.6
This 7km-long avenue, located in Shizunai Town in southern Hokkaido, is lined both sides with 3,000 cherry trees. The two tree lines are arranged exactly 36m wide, hence called "20 Ken Road" (meaning 36m-wide road). It is said that you can behold "thousands of blooming trees at one glance". This spot is a Hokkaido's Regional Heritage site and considered one of Japan's best 100 cherry blossom viewing spots. The best time is from early to mid-May.

Cherry blossoms are very beautiful! During the season, it is recommended to visit early in the morning because there is not much traffic jam.
