At Mitake in Misugi Town, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, a total of around 500 hill cherry trees have been planted along the 1.5 kilometer-long road that leads from National Route 368 to the main entrance to Shinpuku-in Temple, a famous temple belonging to the Shingon sect of Buddhism. When the cherry trees are in full bloom (around mid-April), they form a beautiful “cherry blossom tunnel,” in which the trees gradually come into flower one after another, from the lower ground up to the higher ground. Mitake has been designated a National Place of Scenic Beauty and is ranked among Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. A cherry tree festival is held every year to coincide with the period when the trees are in full bloom; at the temple plaza, the cherry trees are illuminated at night, and a festival bazaar is also held. This festival attracts large numbers of cherry blossom enthusiasts. Toilets, shops, and parking available.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
