Today, I introduce famous spot of “Sakura” in Ina City in Nagano Pref.

Takato’s Cherry is called “Takato-Kohigan-Zakura”.
“Takato-Kohigan-Zakura” is a little small reddish flower than “Somei-yoshino”.

In Takato Castle Site Park, there are about 1500 cherry trees.
It has been called “the most beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan” since a long time ago.
And it’s elected “Sakura attractions 100 selection”.

At the peak of the cherry blossoms, about 25 million tourists visit there.

The best time to watch is in the mid-April.
I recommend you should visit this park in this season.
