    Tochigi Pref. Nikkoushi Sannai 2300
    A famous cherry tree located in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture. Designated a Special Natural Monument, the tree stands in front of the Rinno-ji Temple's Sanbutsudo hall and is a mountain cherry mutation whose pink buds flower into large white blossoms. The tree is approximately 500 years old. The tree blooms from late April through early May and, if one comes to the temple during normal opening hours, one does not need to purchase a ticket to view the tree.

Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
