Miharu Takizakura (Fukushima)

Have you heard of Miharu Takizakura? It’s recognized as one of the top three cherry blossoms trees in Japan. So it’s no wonder that it’s a national designated natural treasure! Located in Miharu, a town in central Fukushima, the tree is estimated to be over a thousand years old and is over 13 meters tall.

If you’re a fan of nature, I’d highly recommend paying a visit to see this majestic tree in all its blushing glory. To get here, you can hop on a bus from JR Miharu Station (20 – 40 minutes, 200 yen one way). A temporary bus service also runs to and from Miharu Station during the peak of the cherry blossom season (25 minutes, 1000 yen for round trip plus admission to the tree).

Miharu Station can be reached via the JR Banetsu-to Line from Koriyama Station (15 minutes, 240 yen, one train every 1-2 hours). Tokyo and Koriyama are connected by the JR Tohoku Shinkansen (80 minutes, about 8000 yen, 3-4 trains per hour).

The entrance fee is 300 yen (free entrance for junior high school students and under). Here’s a tip: the cherry blossom tree will be lit during April. So that means you can be sure of capturing some beautiful photos in the evening!
