Saitama | Kumagaya Sakura-tsutsumi

A gorgeous 2 km corridor of cherry blossoms along the Arakawa riverbank

Kumagaya has been a famous place for cherry blossoms viewing since the Edo Period (1603-1868). Because of its beauty and history, Kumagaya Sakura-tsutsumi has been selected as one of the Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots by Japan Cherry Blossom Association. From the second half of March to early April, about 500 Somei-Yoshino cherry trees form a beautiful tunnel of cherry blossoms spanning 2 kilometers of the Arakawa riverbank, just a five-minute walk from Kumagaya Station. You can enjoy the view from the top of the bank and also go through the corridor formed by the cherry trees.
