In the Sewari-tsutsumi area, where the Kizu and Uji Rivers converge, approximately 220 cherry trees (Someiyoshino) are planted along a 1.4-km stretch, forming a beautiful cherry blossom tunnel in spring. This cherry blossom tunnel is known as one of the most famous cherry blossom viewing spots.
During the cherry blossom viewing season, the area is crowded with people enjoying the cherry blossoms and picnicking. It is especially crowded on weekends and holidays, so we recommend that you visit early in the day.
It takes about 10 minutes on foot from Keihan Ishimizu Hachimangu Station to reach the Sewari-tsutsumi area, but the cherry blossom tunnel itself is quite long, so it is best to wear comfortable walking shoes.
Also, starting in FY2023, the Cherry Blossom Festival will require a 100 yen operating cooperation fee to be paid at the entrance. This money is used for trash disposal, installation of temporary toilets, etc.
