Gongendo-tsutsumi (権現堂堤) is one of the most popular cherry blossom spot near Tokyo. It’s located at Gongendo Park in Saitama Prefecture. Originally, 3,000 sakura trees were planted there but cut down during WWII. However, 1,000 were newly planted in 1949, and they keep standing along 1 km until now.
Beside the cherry blossoms, you can see vast yellow field of mustard. Enjoy the breathtaking views of cherry blossoms pink contrasted with mustard yellow near Tokyo!!
