Every year in spring, 600 cherry trees bloom along both sides of the road that begins at Izu-Kogen Station and heads toward Mt. Omuro, creating a 1.8-mile-long(three-kilometer-long) tunnel of cherry blossoms. During the blooming season, food stalls are set up in the plaza in front of Izu-Kogen Station, so there are plenty of different dishes to try while taking a walk and enjoying the blossoms. There are also yozakura night blossom illuminations after dark.
