A popular cherry blossom viewing spot within Okayama City
This cherry tree-lined street stretches about 1.3km along the embankments of the Asahi River on the east side of Okayama Korakuen Garden. About 200 cherry trees blooming along the banks of the river in late March to early April make for a splendid sight. Every year, the area grows crowded with large numbers of tourists and citizens barbecuing or having parties while participating in hanami (cherry blossom viewing). The nighttime sakura illumination and stalls offering food and beverages also serve as a large reason why this area sees a lot of spring tourists.
