Brief Directions

From Tokyo, take the Chuo Expressway going to Nagoya and get off at the Nirasaki Interchange exit. Turn left and head to the #20 road and cross the Takeda-Bashi (bridge) towards the Takeda Hachimangu. Turn right to a main road about 1km from the bridge and see some markers. The tree is easily seen from the road.

Notes

The tree can be shot at different angles. The best angle (shown on posters) is shooting the tree with the Japan Alps at the background.

Description

The Wanitsuka Sakura is one of the well known cherry blossoms in Japan, visited by thousands each year. It is standing on an elevated hill surrounded by ricefields. Although the sight of the electrical towers besides it is distracting, the size of the tree and the blossoms makes any artificial objects around it unnoticeable. Nearby is a small shrine with very good blossoms as well.
