Approximately 3,000 weeping peach trees flourish in the Asahi district's Kaminaka-cho. The walking paths in the area are lined with beautiful weeping peach blossoms for about 1 kilometer. Early to mid April is usually the best time to view the flowers, though they can bloom at different times in some years.
