【Cherry Blossom Season (Limited Edition)】The river ornamented with cherry blossoms

  • Cherry Blossom Viewing

In the southern Kyoto area, the beauty of cherry blossoms of the Tama River is famous. The Tama River runs through Ide town which is situated 30 km south of Kyoto. If you take a train from JR Kyoto Station, it takes 30 minutes to get to Tamamizu Station, which is the center of the town. Getting out of the station, you will see the cherry blossom trees in front of you when you take the left hand side road. The river ornamented with cherry blossoms is over there.

When you get to the river, you will be surprised to find two very gorgeous rows of cherry blossom trees. They are planted along the river on both sides of the banks. Rambling on the bank, you can appreciate the beauty of the cherry blossoms on the opposite side of the river. There are some small bridges over the river, you can crisscross the river and enjoy the scenery. Especially, when you see the upstream of the river, you find mountains far behind the blossoms. The contrast of the mountains and the blossoms is very beautiful. The whiteness of the flowers is prominent against the green color of the mountains.

Japanese people like to have lunch under cherry blossoms. At this Tama River, you will find many families and groups having lunch beside the river. You can also join them if you prepare a packed lunch. Like that, you will have a very good time and will be happy because you don’t have to pay any entrance fee!
