Facility information | Cherry Tree

The Cherry trees of the kiyoharu Art Colony were planted in March 1925 by the schoolchildren as the memorial of the completion of the Kiyoharu elementary school. The type of Sakura’s are a cross of Oshima and Edo Cherry (which blooms early) and Yoshino Cherry. It has been said that comparatively the lifespan of these kind of Cherry trees are rather short. But at Kiyoharu Art Colony they still show there breath-taking flowers and elegant silhouette every spring. Even after 90 years. In 1970 they were designated as a national natural treasure of Yamanashi.
