Kumagaya Sakurazutsumi熊谷桜堤

Event

An embankment extending about two kilometers along the Arakawa River is planted with approximately 500 Yoshino cherries, and this area has been a renowned cherry blossom viewing destination since the Edo period. Also selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots, the sight of the tunnel of cherry blossoms these trees create in spring overhead is truly spectacular. The best time to view the blossoms is usually from late March to early April, and the Kumagaya Cherry Blossom Festival is held to coincide with the peak blooming period. The trees are also lit up at night during blooming season. While the trees are in bloom, a variety of stall and stands open up in the area, and free parking is also provided specially during this time, resulting in large numbers of visitors coming to enjoy flower viewing. Toilets available. The nearest station is Kumagaya Station.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
