Four Seasons in Kakunodate

  • Four seasons of Kakunodate(spring)

    Somei Yoshino was planted on the Hinokinai Riverbank that flows through the center of the city in commemoration of the birth of the Emperor in Hinokinai Riverbank.
    The crisis of cherry blossoms, 1972, when the tree got rooted by the river law, there was a hole in the levee and the rule that the levee would not be planted on the levee was decided from the idea that the levee collapsed.
    It faced the crisis that the cherry blossoms that the townspeople raised with a misunderstanding raised might be cut down."I want to leave cherry blossom in some way"
    As the talks of logging progressed, the townspeople came up with the idea that the law would protect the cherry trees in the Hinokinai Riverbank. I came up with a method of protecting cherry blossoms as a cultural asset under the Cultural Property Protection Act, designated by the government.
    The cherry blossom tunnel which runs over 2 kilometers in length still makes many people happy because of the efforts of the people of the town

    --summer--
    Fresh green New leaves will grow on June, 7 Monday, Thursday, and you can enjoy a green vivid sight.
    In Akita prefecture where there are many rural landscapes in the vicinity, water enters the rice fields, the blue sky is reflected in the rice field water and it is very beautiful on a calm day without wind.
    There is also a day when you can look up at the night sky and enjoy the full starry sky that can not be enjoyed in the city.

    It is said that it was named from "I want to look back and see it again".The height is about 30 m, the amount of water is rich, and it seems quite impressive that the falls fall down to the valley.

    Recommend Tohoku tourist route(car)
    Near Aomori Oirase Isege Valley → Overnight Hachimantai Aspitetain Drive → Stop at Goshige Onsen Hot Spring → Tamagawa Hot Spring → Via Kakunodate (Machiya Hotel Night) → South of Akita Prefecture (Via Via Narrow) → Hiraizumi
