Senkoji Park千光寺公園

Event

Located on Mt. Senkoji in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Senkoji Park is one of the best places in the Prefecture for viewing cherry blossom, and has been selected for inclusion in the list of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. Besides Yoshino, double-flowered cherry and weeping cherry trees, there are also more unusual varieties to see; in spring, the Park is suffused with the beautiful pinkish-red coloration of the cherry blossom from a total of around 1,500 cherry trees. Besides viewing the blooming cherry trees from ground level, visitors can also admire both the cherry blossom and the views of the Seto Inland Sea from the Park’s observation platforms. From late March to mid-April, when the cherry blossom is in full bloom, visitors can also enjoy the cherry blossom in the evenings, when the cherry trees are illuminated by paper lanterns bearing Haiku poems. Shops, toilets and paid parking available.

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
