A spectacular arch created by around 1,400 cherry blossom trees along a river

The highlight of Iwakura Cherry Blossom Festival is an arch created by around 1,400 cherry blossom trees which have been planted along both banks of the Gojo River where it flows through Iwakura City.

Iwakura Cherry Blossom Festival

The arch can be seen in April, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. There are illuminations from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. during this period, and the floating nighttime cherry blossoms are truly fantastical. Also, on the Saturday and Sunday in the first week of April, there are float parades, performances of "nombori arai" (where people go into the Gojo River and wash off glue used to border the patterns of carp streamers) and other events which liven up the festival.
