Yoichi River Cherry Blossom Rows

余市川桜並木

Cherry tree embankments on the Yoichi River

Sights, Spring

In Yoichi when the cherry blossoms bloom in May, there is a spectacular view to be seen if you walk about the 1km distance from Michi-no-Eki (Roadside Rest Areas) “Space Apple Yoichi” while looking at the Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery. On the Yoichi River embankment, the rows of cherry trees go on for 5km.

These are rows of cherry trees viewed from the slightly elevated embankment of the Yoichi River. Blooming cherry blossoms are close at hand, and the shower of blossoms make for a feeling of beauty that just cannot be seen anywhere else.
