Row of Sakura

About 600 cherry trees are planted along the levees in the center of the city of Fukui. Many cherry trees are lit up every year when they are in full bloom (early to mid-April), leading many visitors to come see the blossoms on the levee. Other nearby places with famous cherry trees include Maruoka Castle and the Ichijōdani Asakura Family Historic Ruins.
