Beautiful cherry blossoms bloom all year long at this park at the foot of Mount Omuro. Every part of Japan has its own timing and special spot for cherry blossom viewing in spring, but Sakura-no-Sato has blossoms in other seasons as well. While spring is still the peak, when over 3,000 trees bloom, the season lasts until September, and even rarer varieties open in October and during winter.
