Satte Gongendo Cherry Embankment
Enjoy Beautiful Scenes Full of Flowers Through Every Season at This Park
Satte Gongedo Cherry Embankment is a famous cherry blossom spot for the Kanto region. The contrasting colors of the pink tunnel of cherry blossoms, formed by around 1,000 Yoshino cherry trees over a length of 1km, and the yellow color of the rape blossoms that bloom below the embankment create a truly stunning view. The area has also been used as a set location in many movies, so many film fans visit to see the location of certain scenes.
During the cherry blossom festival, held every year from the end of March into April, there are around 100 stalls opened in the area, and around 1 million people come to visit. From June through mid-July, around 100 different species of hydrangeas bloom into nearly 16,000 flowers. What’s more, in September the embankment is covered in red cluster amaryllis, also known as red spider lilies, and in January 1 million stunning daffodils, which stand proud in the cold winter air, burst into full bloom. The varieties of flowers blooming along the slopes throughout the year make it a popular photo spot that can be enjoyed from any angle.
