The cherry-blossom pink that colors the history, water, and nature of Shiroishi

Shiroishi's Water and Cherry Blossoms

Sawabata River and Cherry Blossoms

“Sawabata River”, the breath of spring you feel at Shiroishi Castle’s outer moat

If you walk along the Sawabata River, where you can enjoy scenery that overflows with emotions that have coexisted with the water, you can view at once both the samurai residences, storehouses, and old mansion gates, next to the rows of cherry blossom trees.
In the spring only, they light up the trees. We recommend coming to view the blossoms at night!
Best Time to View
Mid-April
Tips for Taking Pictures
  • Depending on how you include the Sawabata River in the background behind the cherry blossoms, the expressiveness can change greatly.
  • We also recommend capturing the cherry blossoms reflected in the Sawabata River!
