Place famous for cherry blossoms Spots in Kumamoto Area

  • Yunoko Cherry Line
    Travel / Tourism
    Minamata City, Kumamoto Prefecture
    This popular cherry blossom viewing spot is approximately 20 minutes by car from Tsunagi Interchange. Its rows of cherry trees stretch for five kilometers along the Minamata Cherry Line on the Yunoko Coast. The area gets packed with visitors who come to see the blossoms of its nearly 300 Yoshino cherry trees when they're in full bloom from late March to early April. The Yunoko Onsen Sakura Festival takes place during this period, when they run 30-minute rides on a flower-viewing tour boat (reservations required), festival stalls spring up along the road selling fare like sweet dango dumplings, and visitors sip sakura-cha, tea laced with cherry petals.

    We took the city bikes to Yunoko to enjoy the onsen. What a surprise to ride on the coastline with such great views. Easy ride back and forth to Minamata.

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
