Japan's largest row of cherry blossom trees
Six-hundred cherry trees line the banks of the Asuwa River, which runs through the center of Fukui City. They stretch over 2.2 kilometers and are said to be the longest path of cherry trees in Japan. They were originally planted thanks to donations from citizens of the city in hopes of a recovery from the Fukui earthquake. When the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the path along the river turns into a pink tunnel. This beautiful scenery has been selected as one of the 100 best cherry blossom spots in Japan.
The Fukui Sakura Festival is held during the peak season and is crowded with cherry blossom spectators.
