As its name suggests, admiring the autumn leaves is the main activity in Momiji Park, which is just five minutes’ walk from Nagatoro Station. It’s the most famous “momijigari” spot in Nagatoro and during the autumn season, the leaves are beautifully illuminated at night.
Nagatoro has also been selected as one of Japan's “Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Sites”, with over 3,000 cherry trees planted around the town. They bloom between late March and late April, with three peak times for viewing throughout the season due to the different varieties.
Highlights include the 2.5-kilometer-long Kita Sakura Dori and Minami Sakura Dori, which is a popular location for photographing the steam locomotive framed by cherry blossom trees along the approach to Hodosan Shrine.
