Takarazuka City’s Top 5 Sakura Spots!

In Hyogo Prefecture’s Takarazuka City there are many excellent spots to enjoy sakura cherry blossoms. Here are our top five sakura spots, each with its own unique appeal. The peak pink petal period every year comes between the end of March and the middle of April.

1.Hana no Michi (Flower Road)
A beautiful walking path leading from Takarazuka Station to Takarazuka Grand Theater. Every spring, people are drawn here not only to see the Takarazuka Revue, but also to see the spring flowers. When in full bloom, the path transforms into a tunnel of cherry blossoms. There are restaurants, cafes, and general stores along the way, so come enjoy a leisurely stroll surrounded by sakura.
Access: 5-minute walk from JR Takarazuka Station or Hankyu Takarazuka Station

2.The Ekiraku Sansou Cherry Blossom Garden

Beautiful trees arching over the flowing river create an environment popular for easy hiking courses through this natural splendor. The garden is also famous for maintaining the research forest left by Dr. Shintaro Sasabe, who devoted his life to the protection and cultivation of ancient Japanese cherry blossoms.
Access: 20-minute walk from JR Takedao Station

3.Ohori River “Hana no Michi Park”

Flowing through Takarazuka City is the little Ohori River, its banks lined in cherry blossoms, creating a stunning view for your pleasure in peak season. Lanterns and teahouses pop up during the sakura season for a fun, festive atmosphere.
Although canceled this year, once Covid-19 abates, this is a must-visit spot.
Access: 15-minute walk from Hankyu Kiyoshikojin Station or 10 minutes by bus from Takarazuka Station

4.Hanshin Racecourse

The road around the Hanshin Racecourse is festooned with rows of cherry blossom trees. Naturally, you can also see sakura inside the racecourse, as the horses run full speed against a backdrop of blossoms.
* Currently, entry to the racecourse cherry blossom viewing area (park area) is closed. Check the JRA website for the Racecourse’s operating conditions.
Access: 5-minute walk from Hankyu Nigawa Station

5.Kiyoshikojin Seichoji Temple

At Kiyoshikojin Seichoji, the head temple of the Shingon Sanpo Sect, the spring blossoms bloom through much of the grounds. A tea party is held every year, offering Japanese sweets and tea to enjoy while gazing upon sakura. Although canceled this year, once Covid-19 abates, this is a must-visit spot. Usuzumi sakura (the pale pink species of sakura) in front of the Tessai Museum are also a beautiful sight to behold.
Access: 20-minute walk from Hankyu Kiyoshikojin Station
