Today I visited Kori Town in the north and walked along Kori Peach Line road. Photo above was a view of peach farm blooming pink with a Kori Town memorial stone. Kori Town has offered its quality peach produce to Imperial Family over the past 20+ years. In this time of year, the whole area along Kori Peach Line turns into pinkish field with peach blossoms.

A manhole cover I found on a sidewalk near JR Kori Station, as shown above, also said “Kenjo-momo- no-sato” which meant “home to peaches offered to Imperial Family”.

The Emperor and Empress couple visited the farm twice, in 2013 and 2015. Photo shown above was a memorial built by local officials.

On the way back to JR Kori Station, Azuma Mountains were seen above the peach blossoms as shown above.

The nearest station to Kori Peach Line road is Kori Station of JR Tohoku Line. The round trip from and back to the station is about 11km or 4hr walk.
