Matabei Cherry Trees (Hongo no Taki Sakura) (又兵衛桜(本郷の瀧桜))

4.5

Place famous for cherry blossoms

The Matabei Cherry Trees are “weeping” cherry trees, located in the city of Uda and said to be 300 years old. According to legend, Goto Matabei, a military commander in the Warring States period, came to live here, and since the trees are near the ruins of his manor house, the trees are referred to as “Matabei Cherry Trees.” They produce beautiful blossoms in early April, attracting tens of thousands of cherry blossom enthusiasts each year.

噂に聞く又兵衛桜。
奈良市内から車で下道で1時間ほど。
どこにでもある田舎の
所々に桜も山桜が見える山村風景に
遠目から見て明らかにわかる見事な桜。

ちょうど菜の花のシーズンと重なり、
青空と菜の花の黄色と桜色が見事なコントラストでした。

遠いところにある公営の駐車場は無料。
最寄りの駐車場代500円。
Reviewed:2020/04/05 1本で見ごたえ十分な桜
日本3大桜をすべてみましたが それに勝るともおとらないぐらい
見ごたえ十分な桜の存在感でした、
これは周りに大きな木や建造物などがない環境が大きいとは思うのですが。
かなり離れたところからも みることができます。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
