Cherry Blossoms

Japan’s Top 100 Blossoms: Yunoko Cherry Line (Kumamoto)


The Yunoko Cherry Line stretches for 5 kilometers along the indented Yatsushiro Sea coastline from downtown Minamata to the hot spring resort of Yunoko. During the sakura season, motorists are treated to a breathtaking contrast between the vivid pink cherry blossoms and the bright blue sea.

The blossoms along the Cherry Line can be enjoyed more leisurely from the parking lots of adjacent Ōsakibana and Wadamisaki Parks and also from boats operating during the hanami season at the Yunoko resort. The Cherry Line is also known for its beautiful sunsets.
