Ancient Blossoms at Oyama Afuri Shrine

Tanzawa-Oyama Area Full day 17

The mountain behind the Oyama Afuri Shrine head office, also called the Cherry Blossom Mountain, has four North Japanese hill cherry trees that are said to be 400 years old. The largest of the four, the Greater Oyamazakura, has a trunk girth of 3.5 meters. After appreciating the trees, you'll be paying homage at the Oyama Afuri Shine, and then enjoying Oyama's famous tofu dishes and boar stew.
