Beautiful Cherry Blossom Tunnel - Sumiyoshi Shrine in Hakodate-
May 9th, 2015
Sumiyoshi Shrine (住三吉神社) is located in Sumiyoshi-cho, Hakodate city near Cape Tachimachi (立待岬) and has been reported that Sumiyoshi Shrine was founded in the Kamakura period. I think that Sumiyoshi(住三吉) Shrine is odd name, and Sumiyoshi(住三吉) Shrine merged Sumiyoshi(住吉) Shrine and Miyoshi(三吉) Shrine. The name of Sumiyoshi(住三吉) Shrine is a good combination. About 30 Yoshino Cherry Trees (ソメイヨシノ) are planted along an approach to the shrine with about 100 m in length, and cherry blossoms are in full bloom in a spring. It is like walking through the cherry blossom tunnel, and tourists will be very comfortable. The cherry blossoms are best viewed from late April to early May. Admission free. A parking lot and a restroom are not provided.
When I read Tweets, Sumiyoshi Shrine Cherry Blossom seems to be popular.
