Description

During the Sengoku (feudal war) period, Tamanawa castle, which was said to be an impregnable mountain castle, stood near the location where Ofuna Botanical Garden Flower Center is now located. Borrowing from the name of this castle, Tamanawa Sakura was named and registered as a breed of Sakura in 1990. Now, these sakura trees can be seen mainly around Ofuna station West exit.
