Miharu Takizakura(三春滝桜) is estimated to be over 1000 years old of Beni-shidarezakura cherry tree, and it has 13.5 meters height and 11.3 meters in a trunk circumference, spreading out over 25 meters east-west and 20 meters north-south. This solitary drooping cherry tree is one of Japan’s three giant cherry tree and designated as a natural monument. Its branches streching in all directions droop till they fall to the ground and produce deep pink flowers in spring, which seems like water flowing down from a waterfall and it’s breathtakingly beautiful!
