Nabana no Sato
Kyushu Island lies southwest of Honshu. South Aso is on the west side of Kumamoto Prefecture, in central Kyushu. There stands a famous and regal 90-year old Kannon cherry tree.
In the middle of a great ranch stands a single majestic cherry tree. The mountains of Takadake, Nakadake, and Eboshidake tower in the horizon, providing a magnificent backdrop to the scene. At night, lights shining upon the cherry tree make for a dramatic and memorable flower viewing.
At JR Kumamoto Station, take the Hohi Honsen towards Bungo Takeda for 1 hour. Transfer at Tateno Station to Minami Aso Railways Takamori Line. Ride for 10 minutes to Kase Station. 52 minute walk to the Kannon Sakura.
