Marvelous weeping cherry trees along Nicchusen Memorial cycling and pedestrian road, Kitakata City, April 24, 2015 (日中線記念自転車歩行者道の枝垂桜 喜多方市 2015年4月24日)

Today, I visited Nicchusen Memorial cycling and pedestrian road in Kitakata City, Fukushima. There were marvelous weeping cherry trees along the road which extends more than 1km. On the way to the site I could see splendid views of Mt. Bandai and Iide Mountain Range.

I finally got to the center of Kitakata City and there was JR Kitakata Station as shown above. Look at this! This is a kura building. Kitakata City is famous for its traditional kura buildings. The Nicchusen Memorial cycling and pedestrian road starts at several minute walk from the station.
