[Seiryuji Temple in Nemuro] Chishimazakura Cherry Trees with Beautiful Colored Gradation Can Be Enjoyed in Place Famous for Cherry Blossoms

Seiryuji Temple

Seiryuji Temple (清隆寺) is a temple built in 1893 in the downtown of Nemuro city, and is about 600 m away from Nemuro Station. A main building was built by Mr. Kikuzo Hanawa (花輪喜久蔵) called "Expert Kesennuma Carpenter (気仙沼大工の名工)" in 1912. The temple is well-known for about 30 Chishimazakura Cherry Trees (千島桜) with over 100 old years. It is said that the Nemuro is famous for coming the last Cherry Blossom Front, and is one of latest cherry blossoming places in Japan. The buildings are very fine, too, and detailed sculptures were made by Mr. Toramasa Ueyama (上山虎正). Those are very cool! Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There is the parking lot on the back side of the temple.

    NEMURO

    Nemuro (根室) that about 26,000 people live in is the 26th largest fishery city in Hokkaido, and one of regional hub cities of the East Hokkaido area, and is the easternmost port town in Japan. The Nemuro has 4 ports, Nemuro Port (根室港), Hanasaki Port (花咲港), Ochiishi Fishing Port (落石漁港) and Habomai Fishing Port (歯舞漁港), and it is famous for catching Hanasaki Crab (花咲ガニ) and Saury, and a catch of the saury is the largest in the Japan. As for a climate, the Nemuro faces the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pcific Ocean, so a wind blows hard. Average annual temperature is 6 degrees, and it is chilly in a summer, and it does not snow hard in a winter. Various things such as Cape Nosappu (納沙布岬) is the easternmost in the Japan, so visitors know the joy of the easternmost things in the Japan. It is a good point to see the earliest sunrise in the Japan, too. In addition, It is said that the Nemuro is famous for coming the last Cherry Blossom Front, and is one of latest cherry blossoming places in the Japan. Read More

The cherry blossoms in the Southern Hokkaido including Hakodate begin to bloom from late April, and in case of late blooming, the cherry blossoms in the Eastern Hokkaido and the Northern Hokkaido seem to bloom in early June. The cherry blossoms in Honshu (the main island of Japan) begin to bloom from mid March, and tourists can enjoy the cherry blossoms until too late season. If everybody forget to see the cherry blossoms in the Honshu, please visit the Hokkaido to savor the cherry blossoms. Read More

    Cherry Blossoms of Seiryuji Temple

    The Chishimazakura Cherry Trees are planted along the approach to the main building. A carpenter, a Buddhist-parishione, brought those cherry trees back from Kunashiri Island (国後島) in Meiji period, then his family transplanted those cherry trees. The feature of the Chishimazakura Cherry Trees is that often grow lowly from 2 to 5 m in height. The best time to see is about mid May. When I visited here in 22 May 2017, most of cherry trees were falling. Few people come, so it may be said that here is a little-known spot. The site is not large, so it takes less than 30 minutes to enjoy the cherry blossoms.
