One of Japan's 100 Best Cherry Blossoms Spot

Come spring and the over 800 "Sakura" cherry trees spread in the area around Okazaki Castle show their proud colors. The evenings during the festival's period feature artificial illumination that lights up the flowery orchard, creating highly enjoyable and fantastic sights. Adding to the festive air of the place, there are also countless food and amusement stalls, the traditional "Yatai", lining up the riverbanks of Oto River (Otogawa River).
