Tunnel of Cherry Blossom and Chozu-Zakura Are Wonderful -Yushun Sakura Road in Urakawa-

May 15th, 2016

Yushun Sakura Road (優駿さくらロード) in Urakawa is located in the northwestern part of Cape Erimo. About 1000 cherry trees are planted along a road with about 3 km in length from an entrance of Yushun-no-Sato Park (優駿の里公園) to Hidaka Training Ranch (日高育成牧場ま) and the Yushun Sakura Road is a famous place for cherry blossoms in Hidaka, too. Because the width of the road is narrower than Shizunai Nijukkendouro Sakuranamiki (静内二十間道路桜並木), a famous place for cherry blossoms, the Yushun Sakura Road looks like a tunnel of the cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom from early May to mid May, and Urakawa Sakura Festival (浦河桜まつり) is held at that time. The Yushun Sakura Road seems to be lit up in the evening. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
