See The Best Of Both Worlds, Aichi's Cherry Blossoms and Autumn Leaves Together!

Japan is famous for its cherry blossom in spring and autumn leaves in fall, and that makes it difficult to choose when to come to Japan. But fear not! Aichi has the perfect solution for this dilemma.

Want to see both at once? Then come to Aichi!

Obara Shikizakura Four-Season Cherry Blossom Trees Festival (Obara Shikizakura Matsuri)

There is only one place in Japan where you can see both the fiery red and orange autumn leaves AND the soft pink cherry blossom at the same time, and that is Aichi Prefecture’s Obara! Special cherry trees called Shikizakura bloom twice a year, once in spring, and again just as the autumn leaves are at their best. This creates an incredibly beautiful, fantastic scene.

Over 10 thousand of the rare Shikizakura trees grace the Obara region, and are usually at their best from early to late November. The trees are said to have originated in the early 1800s when the samurai physician, Fujimoto Genseki was presented with one of the rare trees from a temple in Nagoya. This special tree, now designated as a Natural Monument, was planted in Obara, where it grew very well, spreading across the district.

If you want to enjoy Japan’s famed cherry blossom and also the autumn leaves, visit Aichi’s Obara in the fall, and enjoy the best of both worlds.
