Mato Park Cherry Blossom Festival 真人公園
Over 2,000 cherry trees in bloom, and apple orchards all around
Established in memory of the Taisho Emperor, who died in the early 20th century, Mato Park is home to more than 2,000 cherry trees. Yoshino cherry and wild cherry trees are stunning in full bloom from the middle of April to the end of April, making this site one of Japan's premium cherry blossom viewing areas during the park's festival.
