Sanda City’s Gorgeous Sakura Spots!

The pink petals swaying along the banks of the Mukogawa River are well-known for sakura viewing, but in Sanda City there are many more choices for cherry blossoms. Blooming a little later than those in Kobe and Osaka, it’s now finally time to cherish the sakura in Sanda. These recommendations may also be perfect stops for your spring drive.

Part of the “Furusato Sakura Zutsumi Corridor,” this 170km-long river joining the Seto Inland Sea to the Sea of Japan is lined with about 50,000 cherry trees. When sakura reach full bloom, the banks of the Mukogawa River, lined with around 5,000 trees, are alive with people taking a stroll or enjoying a picnic under branches bursting with blossoms.
At night, about 180 Bonbori lanterns are lit, illuminating a 500m-row of cherry blossom trees in an enchanting evening event.
(Scheduled from April 1 to April 7 this year. *The schedule may change depending on when the cherry blossoms bloom. Take measures against infectious diseases, avoid lingering in crowds, and enjoy the cherry blossoms.)
