    Shimane Pref. Unnanshi Kisukichoukisuki
    This group of cherry trees is on a levee of the Hii River flowing in Kisuki-cho, Shimane Prefecture. About 800 Yoshino cherry trees have been planted along a roughly three-kilometer stretch, and they all burst into bloom at once when the season comes. It's been selected as one of the Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Sites in the nation by the Japan Cherry Blossom Association. Paper lanterns hang along the levee when the trees are in bloom, and the Kisuki Sakura Festival features a variety of events over a two-day period during the season.

    In April the full bloom of Cherry is much more attractive for visitor.The river side road is really wonderful in this time.

Shimane Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
