Gongendo Park (Satte Gongendo Sakura Tsutsumi)
The Breathtakingly Beautiful Contrast of Blue Skies with Yellow Nanohana Blooming Beside Pink Sakura
Gongendo Park was constructed in four zones, three of which are open. Park No. 1 is a multi-purpose athletic field. The 3rd park was built on the theme of greenery interacting with history and culture. Park No. 4 is the Satte Gongendo Sakura Tsutsumi.
Among these, the 1000 cherry trees proudly blooming along an embankment, called Satte Gongendo Sakura Tsutsumi, is a famous sightseeing destination.
Backlit by blue skies, the contrast of the yellow field of Nanohana (rape blossoms) spreading out from the row of pink Sakura will take your breath away.
Outside of the Sakura season, about 16,000 bushes of 100 varieties of hydrangea bloom in June, when Ajisai Matsuri, an event to commemorate this blossom, is held. From September through October, the embankment is colored bright red when spider lilies bloom, making the park a place where flowers can be enjoyed in every season.
Divided into 4 zones, the most famous one is Gongendo’s Sakura embankment
It’s famous for a 1-km stretch of about 1,000 proudly blooming Somei-Yoshino Sakura
The contrast of blue skies and yellow Nanohana extending from the pink row of Sakura is stunning
Enjoy taking in the scenery with seasonal flowers such as hydrangea and spider lilies
