Because a neighborhood of the cherry‐tree‐lined path trees are surrounded by fields and ranches, the scenery is very idyllic. Tourists can look over the Hokkaido's rich natural scenery. There is a royal building called Ryuunkaku (龍雲閣) built in the Meiji period along the straight line road and the tourists can observe it only during Shizunai Cherry Tree Festival.
