Iwaki Kogen Prefectural Natural Park
Iwaki Kogen Prefectural Natural Park sprawls across the southern foot of Mt. Iwaki, a sacred mountain worshipped locally for centuries. Iwakiyama Shrine is known as another Nikko, with its ancient history and solemn atmosphere amplified by the dark cedar forests. In spring, 6,500 wild cherry trees blossom over a total distance of 20 km, starting from Sakurabayashi Park in the highlands – a scene that has been called the most amazing cherry blossom promenade in the world.
