Cherry Blossom Festival

Flower Tunnel
Flower Tunnel at night

It is a cherry blossom festival held in Asahigaoka Park, which is known as the place where cherry blossoms are particularly beautiful in Saga Prefecture. Asahigagaoka Park was the site of Kashima Castle, and in 1968 the cherry blossom trees were built on the road of the samurai residence. This cherry blossom trees are now called “Flower Tunnel”, and beautiful cherry blossoms follow the 300m road to the park. It is one of the best cherry blossoms in the city and many tourists visit every year. Cherry blossoms are lighted up in the evening, and lantern lights fantastically illuminate the cherry blossoms at night.
