Let us introduce the Sumizome cherry at Teraono area in Ryumonji.

“If you do remember my glory in the past, pity on me in monk robe"

This tanka poetry of Sumizome cherry was written by Takehito, the 14th head of the Kikuchi clan.

The Sumizome cherry tree, which is quite unique with single and double flowers, was replanted from the temple in Teraono area.

Enjoy the beauty!
