A cherry tree over 1,500 years old

Uzusumi Park is home to the 1,500-year-old Neodani Usuzumi-Zakura, a cherry tree that has survived many dangers over the centuries, such as heavy snowfall in the Taisho era (1912–1926), typhoons in Ise Bay, and termite damage.

How to Get There

From Nagoya take the JR Tokaido Line to Ogaki Station; the journey is about 30 minutes. From Ogaki take the local Tarumi Railway to the final stop, Tarumi Station, which takes about an hour. From here, the park is a 15-minute walk.

One of Japan's top three cherry trees

The Neodani Usuzumi-Zakura cherry tree is one of the Japan's "Three Great Cherry Trees," and it is a designatied National Natural Monument.

It is said that the tree's name comes from the fact that its flowers change from light pink when in bud to white when in full bloom, and then to a distinct pale inked color when it is about to fall.


During the blossom season, the park is filled with people from all over Japan who come to see the Neodani Usuzumi-Zakura.
