Row of cherry trees on Mt.(Iwakisan Tourist Association)

Drive through a 20km tunnel of cherry blossom trees

Hirosaki City is home not only to the Hirosaki Park Cherry Blossom Festival, but also to the "Iwaki-san Cherry Blossom Row," which begins in mid-April at the foot of the beautiful sacred mountain Iwaki-san, also known as "Tsugaru Fuji.

Iwaki, is a spectacular sight with the powerful and beautiful Oyamazakura cherry trees blooming along Prefectural Route 3 for a total length of 20 km.


Take the Konan Bus from JR Hirosaki Station and get off at Komoriyama Iriguchi (about 40 minutes), and the rows of cherry trees stretch for about 20 km along the prefectural road from Hyakuzawa to Dake areas. It all started in 1985, when the residents of the former Iwaki Town planted about 1,000 Oyama cherry trees in commemoration.

The local people continued to plant trees every year, with the aim of creating the world's largest row of cherry trees, and by 1995, approximately 6,500 Oyama cherry trees had been planted over a 10-year period. The 20-km-long avenue of trees, which continues forever, is loved by local residents and is now visited by many tourists.


Blooming season

The trees are located at elevations between 200 and 450 meters above sea level at the foot of Mt.
