Kobo-zakura Cherry Tree七ツ田の弘法桜

Place famous for cherry blossoms

Located about a 30-minute drive from the Tohoku Expressway’s Morioka Interchange and about ten minutes by taxi from JR Shizukuishi Station. The edo-higanzakura cherry is about 800 years old and is designated as a natural monument in Shizukuishi. It is the oldest in Iwate Prefecture and the largest in size. There is a legend that when Kobo Daishi visited, the cherry blossom staff he had took root where he stabbed it into the ground and became a cherry tree. Every year around Golden Week, many beautiful flowers bloom with such power that it does not seem like an old tree.

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
