Heike Ipponzakura (single cherry tree) at Tenpokoyama


Heike sacred tree blooming strongly in the unexplored "Heike Valley

Yamakawa-cho, Miyama City is one of the "Heike valley" where the remnants of the Heike clan are said to have lived in hiding. The "Heike Ipponzakura" stands at the top of Tempokozan, a small mountain in the Heike Valley, and is a sacred tree for the Heike clan.
The 2.8-meter trunk of this 250-year-old yamazakura cherry tree stands proudly overlooking the Yosegawa River, the site of the last battle in the "Battle of Genpei," and blooms beautifully every year.
The Heike Valley is dotted with other single cherry trees, known collectively as the "Five Great Mountain Cherry Blossoms of the Heike": the Tenpoko Oozakura, the Heike Remnant Cherry Blossom, the Aoyadani Shiroo Oozakura, and the Kamigoriken Oozakura.
The Heike Five Great Mountain Cherry Blossoms are located in a secluded area and are not accessible by car, so a walking tour is recommended.
