Haze line at Yanagisakasone


Haze, raw materials of candles, is said to have come from a Chinese ship that washed ashore on Sakurajima in 1645 (Shoho 2). The Kurume clan begun to plant Haze around 1730 (Kyoho 15) and encouraged its people to plant Haze on vacant lots, wasteland, and riverbanks. Haze was widely used inside and outside the Kurume clan and became an important commodity for the clan as well as farmers. Matsuyama-haze and Iyoshi-haze were developed by the Kurume clan and were spread all over the country as a new superb plant. Present day, there are 200 plants that can trace their history back to the original plants. The Autumn color is overwhelming.
Prefectually Designated Natural Treasure.
About 200 Haze trees stretch 1.1 kilo-meters
