The tree has a trunk circumference of about 7.2 meters and stands 20 meters high, and was thus selected as one of the "100 giants in the forest" by the Forestry Agency. Koshidai Cherry Blossom Festival is held every year on the 3rd of May. Yabusame horseback archery accompanied by taiko drumming is held, and local organizations set up food stalls.
