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.
