Sugi no Baba Street (秋月杉の馬場)
A road in Asakura City, Fukuoka Prefecture. Known as the ''Little Kyoto of Fukuoka,'' this former castle town area is surrounded by mountains and pure streams. Extending out from the Akizuki Castle Ruins, the road is lined with some 200 cherry trees on either side which form a gorgeous 500-meter-long tunnel of blossoms in spring, making the area a top cherry blossom viewing destination. The Akizuki Spring Festival is also held here in April. At night, the area is lit up with electric lights, giving visitors the chance to enjoy a magical landscape quite different from that of the daytime.
