Cherry blossoms have a very important meaning to Japanese people. If you visit here, you will understand their meaning. Pink cherry blossoms line the Nagura River for as far as 2 kilometers. People wait for a beautiful spring day like this impatiently, welcome it, and try to take in as much as possible of their fleeting beauty. If, by chance you can visit this place at this time of the year, the cherry blossoms will without a doubt make your view of life a little richer.
Right next to this spot to see cherry blossoms is Agri Station Nagura. With a dining space and a space for selling vegetables, this is a fun place to look for souvenirs. Here, you must try the specialty gohei-mochi made by a local mom. Gohei-mochi are oval-shaped, skewered rice dumplings grilled with a savory sauce. They have been frequently eaten in the Okumikawa area since long ago. The rural landscape you can see here and gohei-mochi are marked remains of the charm of old Japan.
