[Mishima Taisha Shrine: A row of cherry trees]

Relish the specialties of Mishima in the precincts as they take on the colors of spring.

Approx. 200 sakura trees including kawazu-zakura, oshima-zakura, somei-yoshino and yae-zakura, begin to bloom one by one from late February to mid April. Various sakura blossoms can be enjoyed over a long period at Izunokuni Ichinomiya Mishima Taisha Shrine. Late March to early April, the peak of the sakura blooming season, is also the best season for the shidare-zakura planted surrounding the Shinchi. The sakura trees in full bloom reflecting on the surface of the pond, along with the warm spring sunshine, make you feel the coming of spring. At the teahouse in the precincts, visitors can enjoy tasting the shrine's specialty Yomogimochi "Fukutaro", with views of the beautiful sakura.
