Weeping Cherry Blossoms at Kassenba

There are two weeping red cherry trees at the spot where the renowned samurai Hachimantaro Yoshiie is said to have battled with Abe Sadato and Muneto. The trees are known as "grandchild cherry blossoms" of Miharu Takizakura, a famous cherry tree also located in Fukushima. The trees bloom with wonderful red flowers and appear to be a waterfall of blossoms. These trees are estimated to be 170 years old. Photography tip: We recommend taking a picture from the slope where you can enjoy the lovely contrast of weeping red cherry blossoms, blue sky, and canola flowers.
