This time, we will introduce the charms of Kakunodate that has different expressions throughout the seasons with its seasonal plants.

What is Bukeyashiki-dori in Kakunodate?

The townscape of Kakunodate was created in the early Edo Period by Ashina Yoshikatsu.
In 1976, it was designated as an important preservation district of historic buildings. It is a sightseeing spot where many samurai houses still remain in their original form.

In addition, along the bank of the river that follows through the city are Yoshino cherry trees stretching for 2 kilometers.
Also along the Bukeyashiki-dori are about 400 weeping cherry trees and some are over 300 years old. This sight is splendid!
